November voting will be easier for three E. Tennessee counties

(WVLT) - If you vote in one of three East Tennessee counties, things will be a bit easier come November.

Voters in Knox, Anderson and Loudon counties will be able to cast a ballot at any voting center in their county.

The new voting system is being tested thanks to a nearly $100,000 grant from Pew Charitable Trusts to the University Of Tennessee's Howard H. Baker Junior Center For Public Affairs.

University officials say the centers would replace precinct-based voting, and would offer voters a continuous, twenty day window to vote.
