Voter registration numbers up for November election
A large number of first-time voters are expected to cast their ballot in the November Tennessee General Election. The DeKalb County Election Commission office reported recently that 850 new registrations have been logged since Jan. 1, with 387 of those since the August election. “One in eight active voters registered for the first time this year or had their registration reactivated after they had been purged for lack of participation for a number of years,” said DeKalb County’s Administrator of Elections, Dennis Stanley.
