CLC Letter on Tennessee Non-Compliance with National Voter Registration Act

CLC, representing the Tennessee NAACP, sent a letter to Tennessee Secretary of State Hargett and Tennessee Coordinator of Elections Goins regarding Tennessee’s incorrect voter registration form relating to people with prior felony convictions. At present, the State of Tennessee is not in compliance with the requirements of the National Voter Registration Act (“NVRA”). If Tennessee does not remedy the problem during the 20 day notice period, CLC intends to seek a preliminary injunction.
