Upset about that pesky little law that now requires voters to have ID? Well, the Knox County Election Commission, in a news release sent out yesterday (when I was out of town), says all you have to do is vote by mail (so long as you're old enough).
Anyhoo, ya got one week as the deadline to apply for an absentee by-mail ballot is next Tuesday.
“Tennessee law has changed,” said Knox County's top election person, Cliff Rodgers. “Any registered voter 60 years of age or older may apply to vote by mail. You don't need a doctor's note. You just need to apply.”
Please note that you need to fill out an “Application for Absentee By Mail Ballot,” which you can download right smack here. Or, call 215-2480 and someone will mail a form to you.
Rodgers said they're expecting 200,000 folks to vote in this election, so “don't get caught waiting in long lines on Election Day.”
