Letter to the Editor

Written by Thomas W. Terry

Letter to the EditorClarksville, TN – Friday, December 6th, 2019, was the deadline for the signature drive led by residents of Montgomery County.

During the course of the MPEC debacle there have been a number of allegations and revelations brought to light, one of the most concerning of which is that there are approximately 57,000 invalid voter registrations belonging to residents who are either deceased, no longer live in the county, or who are ineligible to vote.
