Vote by mail
Several lawsuits have been filed in Tennessee, asking that citizens be allowed to vote by mail in the upcoming elections, in an effort to decrease the spread of COVID 19. And now a Tennessee judge has held that the state's guidance about who can vote by mail due to the coronavirus is "very ambiguous," and she pointed to other states who say anyone can vote by mail if they are a registered voter. But Tennessee election officials say such a move is not feasible in our state. Davidson County Chancellor Ellen Hobbs Lyle said her final order will be "a practical, workable solution, or it will throw the election into chaos." Lyle also raised concerns about mailing costs for local governments.
