Tennessee amendments bring confusion to voters

MADISON COUNTY, Tenn. — Amendments 1, 2, 3 and 4 are proving confusing for many voters. Officials at the Madison County Election Commission said 972 voters came in Tuesday to cast early ballots. That is the largest single day of total votes since early voting began Oct. 15. Poll workers said the one thing that is slowing down voters is many are asking for help understanding the amendments to the state constitution, but unfortunately they cannot help. “We do get a lot of voters who ask us to explain the ballot, but we cannot do that because anything that we might say in trying to explain it might be showing our opinion,” said Kim Buckley of the Madison County Election Commission.
