Hargett says election website will work in November

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Secretary of State Tre Hargett said Tennesseans will be able to see real-time election returns for the November election.

Hargett tried to provide the live results during Thursday's primary, but demand overwhelmed the server.

The Tennessean reports the department had a $9.95-per-month account to host its web functions and the web-hosting company had other clients on the same server. When too much traffic came in to the Secretary of State's site, the company shut it down to protect its other clients.

Results weren't posted to the website until late Friday afternoon.
