Voter Trust Task Force to Monitor Primary

comment
Thinking about casting a ballot for a dead relative in Tuesday's primary election? That wouldn't be wise. District Attorney Bill Gibbons announced Thursday that a special "Voter Trust Task Force" will be on hand to deal with any potential voter fraud.

Gibbons and Tennessee Bureau of Investigations Director Mark Gwyn created the force in 2006 as a response to allegations of fraud in past Shelby County elections.

On Super Tuesday, agents will be on standby to travel to any voting location at the request of the district attorney.

Voters who observe problems at the polls are instructed to call the Election Commission at 545-4125.
