voting rights

The 2015 Metro General Election is Aug. 6, but if you can’t wait to cast your ballot for Nashville mayor, vice mayor, and council, you can vote starting today and on through Aug. 11.

In most states up north, it’s simple: You go to the polls, give the poll worker your name and, perhaps, your address, and cast your ballot. Voting is a wee bit more complicated — and sinister — in the southland, and if this truly is to be a nation where all are equal under law, that’s got to stop.
