West Knox voters decide Wednesday who will hold 14th Dist. House seat

Wednesday night voters will decide who represents Farragut and most of Southwest Knox County in the state House.

The Republican primary election between Knox County school board member Karen Carson and local businessman Jason Zachary wraps up Wednesday. The general election is Sept. 29, but because no Democrat qualified to run, tomorrow night’s winner is all but assured the seat when the Tennessee General Assembly meets again in January.

Turnout for this race hasn’t been great.

Early voting represented a small fraction of the almost 39,100 eligible district voters. In all, 2,631 cast early votes. That also included 95 people who cast absentee ballots.

The seat was formerly held by Ryan Haynes, R-Knoxville, who stepped down to take over the state GOP.
