NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Ahead of tomorrow night’s second presidential debate, Lipscomb University is offering voters a chance to discuss the tensions between free speech and civility.
The Lipscomb forum will begin at 6 p.m. Tuesday evening. Participants will then get a chance to watch the debate together.
As the campaign debate season continues, WMOT is asking Tennesseans what one question they would ask the candidates if given the chance. Today we hear from Hedy Weinberg, director of the Tennessee chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union.
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT) -- A coalition of groups opposed to Tennessee’s new voter photo ID law are scheduled to hold a press conference on Legislative Plaza Wednesday afternoon.
The upcoming Super Tuesday presidential preference primary March 6th will be the first state-wide vote where the new law will be enforced. Most voters will be required to present some type of state or federal ID before being allowed to cast a ballot.
Opponents have launched initiatives to repeal the law as well as efforts to get voters the kind of photo ID they’ll need to vote.
