Tennessee Democrats say their analysis of Secretary of State records shows more than 11,000 voters across the state have had part or all of their voting histories “disappear” between December and last month. Calling the entire issue “troubling,” they are warning it could lead to some voters getting unfairly purged from voting lists. Earlier this week, state Democratic Party Chairman Chip Forrester called on State Election Coordinator Mark Goins for a “full and detailed explanation” as well as an “independent review...” of the state’s voter files. The situation, which first came to light in Shelby County, now involves 69 counties, according to party officials. The Chattanooga Times Free Press has more.
