The man who oversees elections in Nashville has been fired for mismanaging his agency. In protest, one of Davidson County’s five election commissioners resigned at a meeting Thursday afternoon.
Five years after the state handed down recommendations for better securing voter information, a new audit finds that the Davidson County Election Commission basically forgot about those instructions.
Poll watchers in Nashville say they were surprised that the state’s voter ID law was almost a non-issue on Election Day. But they are asking for an explanation for why lines were so long.
