PBA review: Courthouse doors wrongly locked early, barring registrations

An investigation Tuesday showed the doors of the Old Knox County Courthouse were locked early by a Public Building Authority officer, preventing voter registration applications from being filed before deadline.

As a result of the "very unusual set of circumstances," according to Knox County Administrator of Elections Cliff Rodgers, the 13 voter registration applications that were to be submitted Monday afternoon will be accepted for review.

Also, authorities will "preserve evidence" in the case should the registrations later become an issue in any election, Rodgers said.
