Eyes are on Blount County, TN Election

A source in Blount County, TN say that eyes are on the August 2, 2018 election. Only 6 positions (on the County Commission) in the entire county are opposed by a Democrat challenger to the Republican nominee, eyes are on the Absentee ballot(s) and the process(es). Surprisingly, the Daily Times has been made aware of some of the absentee applications that have been submitted and to date they have done absolutely NOTHING to report it.

A reminder about a couple of the governing law(s) concerning absentee ballots are:

Tenn. Code Ann. § 2-6-202(c)(3) – A person who is not an employee of an election commission commits a Class E felony if such person gives an application for an absentee ballot to any person.
Tenn. Code Ann. § 2-6-202(c)(4) – A person who is not an employee of an election commission commits a Class A misdemeanor if such person gives an unsolicited request for application for absentee ballot to any person.
