Cumberland University and the Wilson County Election Commission are working together to improve the voting experience in Wilson County. Students in Eric Landis' MBA class have teamed with the election commission on a project to gather data on how long it takes to vote a ballot. The Aug. 7 general election ballot will include 15 judicial offices and all Wilson County offices except property assessor. Along with the general election, there will be a federal and state primary for all state legislative offices, governor, U.S. House and U.S. Senate. “The August ballot will have a large number of races on it,” administrator of elections Phillip Warren told the Tennessean. “This research helps us be prepared and have adequate voting machines at the polls on Election Day.”
