Davidson County Primary Election Flooded Out
NASHVILLE (AP) — Election officials in Nashville have delayed the city's local primary because of flooding.
The Davidson County primary election was to have taken place Tuesday, but local election commission members conducted an emergency meeting Monday and voted to delay it for two weeks.
Commission member Steve Abernathy told The Tennessean many voters might not have been able to get to polling places.
State Coordinator of Elections Mark Goins and Chancellor Russell Perkins both approved delaying the election until May 18.
