State ACLU Executive Director Hedy Weinberg, who doesn’t return calls seeking comment, wants you to call her and leave your comment.
ACLU-TN late last night sent me a spin release (yeah, I slept in, so that’s why you’re just reading about it now), letting voters know that the organization will “ensure the fundamental right to vote is preserved for all Tennesseans of Election Day,” and has set up a toll-free tattletale line to help voters who encounter problems at the polls today.
If this happens to you, then I suggest you first call the local election commission. That number is 215-2480. Now, if you think the ACLU is going to help you, then feel free to call 877-651-1999. The hot line will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Central “and will allow voters to report voting problems and obtain assistance if they feel they have been unfairly denied the right to vote.”
All this has to do with the new voter ID law, which I’m not getting into.
Either get an ID or vote with a provisional ballot.
