The Nashville Metro Council has requested that city lawyers agree to an expedited hearing before the Tennessee Supreme Court to determine the date for the special election to replace former Mayor Megan Barry, the Nashville Post reports. Former councilmember Ludye Wallace challenged the Nashville Election Commission’s decision to include the election on the Aug. 2, saying instead the vote should take place in May. Davidson County Chancellor Claudia Bonnyman ruled in the city’s favor, and now Wallace is appealing to the Supreme Court.
