Court Declines to Hear Brentwood Election Case

The Tennessee Supreme Court declined to hear the city of Brentwood’s case with the Williamson County Election Commission over use of the city-controlled library as an early voting polling place. The appeal to the state’s top court was the city’s last avenue after a state appeals court found earlier this year that the state code supported the Election Commission’s contention that it had the power under state law to determine which facilities to use in the election process. The Tennessean has more.
