The Williamson County Election Commission voted yesterday to turn a complaint of “voter fraud” over to District Attorney Kim Helper. It deals with Democrats crossing party lines to vote in Republican primaries, The Williamson Herald reports. The issue stems from two Democratic candidates picking up Republican primary ballots while early voting in the May 1 county primary elections. Williamson County Republican Party Chairman Debbie Deaver voiced complaints that while Tennessee has open primaries, state law requires primary voters to be “bona fide” members of the party to which they intend to vote or else, a voter that “intends to affiliate with that party.”
