Davidson Co. Election Commission Creates New Poll Books

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn.- There's a new push to avoid a repeat of the recent primary election where some Davidson County voters were given ballots for the wrong primary because the machines were defaulting to the Republican election.

The new electronic poll books have been reprogrammed after a handful of other voters said there were given the wrong ballots. The Davidson County Election Commission stands behind the new technology, and denies there was any sort of conspiracy to deny Democrats from voting for the candidate of choice.

"We have Democrats, we have Republicans on staff, we are all mixed in and we all work hard, same way with the people at the polls, there's a mixture, everyone wants to do it just right," said Albert Tieche, Davidson County Election Administrator.

The election commission will meet next week to decide if they will use these new poll books in every precinct in the General Election.
