NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP/WMOT) — Democratic leaders are asking for a delay in certifying the August primary results after reports that voting machines in Davidson County defaulted to the Republican primary ballot.
A letter was sent to Secretary of State Tre Hargett Wednesday by the entire Democratic state legislative leadership. The letter states "voting apparatus should never default to one party or another" and calls for a full investigation.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- A former Wilson County Sheriff’s Department Lieutenant is in jail today facing a long list of charges.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation served 39 year-old Mount Juliet resident John Patrick Edwards with multiple charges yesterday after he was indicted by both the Davidson County and Wilson County grand juries.
The charges stem from offenses going back at least five years that officials say Edwards committed while serving as a police officer.
