Former Rep. Inadvertently Deleted from Voting Rolls

State election officials have apologized to former congressman Lincoln Davis, blaming a "clerical error" for his being turned away from a voting station in his home county of Fentress yesterday. Davis, who lost his 4th Congressional District seat in 2010, said he was denied the right to vote in the Pall Mall community, where he has been voting since 1964. The state election coordinator explained that Davis was inadvertently deleted from the rolls in Fentress County because he is listed as eligible to vote in city elections in Pickett County, where he also owns property.
