Live at 9: The new voter registration law, Chef Franco & The Exit 56 Blues Festival

The new voter registration law

A new Tennessee law creates criminal and civil penalties against voter registration groups who don’t comply with certain requirements or submit too many incomplete applications. At least two lawsuits have already been filed against the new mandate.

Brad Watkins and Marian Ott joined us to talk about that on Live at 9.
