Clarksville, TN – On Election Day polls opened at 7:00am, but I didn’t get going till 9:30am. My first stop was to vote at Smith school. After I voted, I took a few pictures before I headed off to the Election Commission.
“The elections today have been busy, very busy,” said Rita Wilson, the chairwoman of the Montgomery County Election Commission.
