NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Davidson County Election Administrator Albert Tieche has hired an attorney to help him respond to a report on the commission's management of last year's elections.
Problems included failing to open the polls on a Saturday during early voting; machines that sometimes defaulted to the Republican ballot during the primary; and shortages of poll workers, printed forms, parking and phone lines on Election Day.
Tieche told The Tennessean (http://tnne.ws/11wT1xK) a draft of the state's report frequently focuses on him. He declined to make it available, saying it's not a public record until he and the commission have a chance to respond.
Tieche said he didn't think the state had ever examined any county in that way.
All three Republican commissioners and one of two Democrats were replaced by state lawmakers recently.
