Some Voters Purged in Tennessee

Camden, TN – An examination of voter registrations in Benton County, Tennessee has found thousands of voters with incomplete forms and some voters who have been purged for being felons. Benton County election administrator Mark Ward said 2,100 forms were declared deficient, such as questions left blank. WSMV-TV reports that some county residents were concerned that the problems with the forms could lead to some people not being eligible to vote. But Ward said that none of these registrations
have been invalidated and the people are still eligible to vote, but they need to correct the forms. There are 11,700 registered voters in the county.
