FROM STAFF REPORTS
Carter County Administrator of Elections Tracy Harris announced that an inspection of the voting machines that will be used for Early Voting will take place at 8:15 a.m. on April 13 at the Carter County Election Commission, 116 Holston Ave.
This is in accordance with the TCA 2-9-105(b) which states: The county executive committees of the political parties, independent candidates, and the press may come to examine and verify that the voting machines are properly set up and in accurate working order. Each county executive committee chair and county primary board chair may designate a representative who may be present to see that the machines are properly prepared for use in the election.
According to Harris, once the machines have been examined, the party representatives and either the commission or the voting machine technician shall make a certificate in writing which shall be filed in the county election commission office stating the number of machines; whether all of the machines are set at zero (000); the number registered on each protective counter; and the number on each seal with which the machines are sealed.
The commission may delegate its duty to examine the machines to the voting machine technician or Election Commissioner representing party.
Harris added that if the public has any questions concerning the inspection or the ballots, to call the Election Commission office at 423-542-1822 or email: email@example.com.
