Nashville elections chief responding to probe

Posted: Updated:

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 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 1 of 2 Democrats were replaced by state lawmakers recently.
