Knoxville locals discuss Tennessee voting

Tennessee Journal (Sept. 29, 0218) — “It is critically important in these uncertain and dangerous times that Tennesseans understand it is imperative to be involved in local, state and federal elections,” Dr. Daryl Carter, associate professor of history at East Tennessee State University, said.

The Emporium Center of Knoxville, Tennessee hosted “Tennessee: Why Aren’t You Voting? An Interactive Conversation” on Sept. 27. The event aimed to raise voter awareness and to help create more informed voters. The discussion culminated as part of the “Democracy and the Informed Citizen Symposium” hosted by the Knox County Public Library, Humanities Tennessee, Jane L. Pettway Foundation, League of Women Voters, Arts and Culture Alliance and Leadership Knoxville.
