The Davidson County Election Commission is prepared to cut the number of early voting sites in the upcoming general election from 10 to one unless money is added to the mayor's requested budget, the Tennessean reports. The election commission yesterday voted to operate only one early voting site ahead of Nashville's August election — the number required by state law — if the Metro Council approves the mayor's recommended budget without changes. The budget from Mayor Karl Dean is $868,000 short of the funding needed, according to the commission.
