Election Commission To Vote On Electronic Polling Books

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn.- The Davidson County Election Commission has decided to reevaluate their use of the electronic polling books in the upcoming November's election, despite having voted to ditch the devices last month.

The use of the electronic polling books has once again been put on the Election Commission's agenda. Commissioner Abernathy thinks they should revisit the topic and use the devices in November so that taxpayers can see the benefit of what they already paid for. But the Tennessee Citizens Action Group says the EPB's cannot be trusted after they defaulted about 160 voters to a Republican ballot in the August Primary.

"The fact that the election commission is not waiting for this to play out and they are on a rush to deploy these poll books in November does not make any sense they are going to lose all of the citizens of Davidson County are going to be like this process is not accurate it is not fair," said Mary Mancini with the Tennessee Action Commission.

The Election Commission meeting was set for Thursday at 3 p.m.
