Chancellor JoeDae Jenkins ordered the Shelby County Election Commission to allow people with incomplete voter registration applications to fix any deficiencies and vote regularly on Election Day, The Commercial Appeal reports. The ruling comes after Tennessee Black Voter Project and the Memphis NAACP sought a court order against the Shelby County Election Commission over alleged voter disenfranchisement. The election commission will appeal the ruling on an emergency basis, their attorney, John Ryder, said.
