TNDP to Join Press Conference with Democratic Leaders and Candidates Regarding Voter Suppression in CD-07

For Immediate Release Contact: Brit Bender | Tennessee Democratic Party | 319 Plus Park Blvd., Suite 202, Nashville, TN 37217 | Office: (615) 327–9779 |  

NASHVILLE — On Wednesday, November 2nd at 12:00 p.m. CDT, the TNDP will join local Democratic leaders and candidates in condemning the voter suppression taking place in Tennessee’s 7th Congressional District — a consequence of gerrymandering that took place after lawmakers carved Nashville into three districts during redistricting. Interactive maps from the Comptroller’s Office and the Legislature suggest some voters live and vote in CD-07; however, upon voting, those voters discovered that the Secretary of State’s office lists them as in TN-06. The TNDP is urging voters to cast their ballots as soon as possible to ensure their votes will be counted.

Press Conference

Today, Wednesday November 2nd, 12:00 p.m. CDT

Legislative Plaza, across from the Capitol Building on MLK Jr Blvd (600 Dr. M.L.K. Jr Blvd, Nashville, TN 37243).
