JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – There are no contested races in next month’s Campbell County General Election. However, that’s not stopping the election from heating up.
When Administrator of Elections Ann Ayers-Colvin and her staff came to work on Monday at the election commission office, they knew instantly that Monday’s day of Early Voting would be a “hot one.” The air conditioning at the office was out, and it was already 81-degrees in the building before 8 am.
Nathanial Morton and other election officials spent a hot day on Monday in their COVID-19 personal protection equipment.
The air conditioning was repaired, and the building slowly began cooling down. It was 76-degrees by 4:30 pm. The election and the building should not be quite as hot on Tuesday as it was on Monday. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 07/21/2020-6AM)
