The Prison Vote

Prisoners may have decided an important Nashville Metro Council Election:

Current law states that someone who is incarcerated and who hasn't formally lost their voting rights must vote by absentee ballot, but that two election judges have to be witnesses to the act, and that at least seven days before Election Day, these judges go to the prison, observe the incarcerated person vote, and then must personally take the ballot to the Post Office. There is, of course, no potential for voter fraud there (sarcasm mine).
