Tennessee: The Hamblen County commission voted 12 to 1 to pay approximately $56,000 to purchase 35 e-poll books, two for each county precinct, plus a spare.
Also in Tennessee, the secretary of state’s office has unofficially launched the new online voter registration system with the official announcement coming next week. The online voter option, now available at https://ovr.govote.tn.gov, is the product of a law passed in 2016 that called for the state to have an online registration system running by July 1, 2017. During the 2017 legislative session, the deadline was extended to Sept. 1, 2017 but the site has been up for a couple of weeks.
