A long-time Charlotte resident says she was shocked to learn that she had been purged from the voter roll because the state election office reported she had moved to Shelby County. Melinda Miller, who lives on Vanleer Highway and works in the District Attorney’s office in Charlotte, told the Dickson County Election Commission Tuesday that a candidate for local office told her that her name was not on the list of registered voters he had obtained from the Dickson County Election Office. When she went to the office to investigate, Administrator of Elections Linday Medley said Miller’s name had been purged in December because a state report used to update voter rolls incorrectly showed Miller as having moved to Shelby County. Miller said she was told that the Tennessee Division of Elections list contained a voter registration in Shelby County that matched the last four digits of her Social Security number and Medley said the office always verifies by date of birth and name before purging a voter and a notice of purge is sent. Miller said she asked to see her voter registration record and the state list that caused her to be purged, but has not been shown them, and did not receive a letter from the election office. Miller told the commission she is concerned the mistake could affect other voters. “If it happened to me, who else are you purging off this list and who’s going to find out the day of the election?” Miller asked. Chairman Jack Garton asked that the commission be provided copies of the state list and Miller’s registration to determine whether the state is sending out incorrect information leading to voters being purged when they shouldn’t be. Medley said Miller had filled out a new registration card and been returned to the voter rolls. When pressed by Garton and Commissioner Tim White, who called Medley’s responses “adversarial,” Medley called it an isolated incident and confirmed that the mistake was made in the Dickson County office. “We know that the error happened in the office. So it’s not about the state report and their lack of sufficient information. It happened local,” Medley said. Garton asked that Medley supply the commission with all the documentation that led to Miller being purged so it can review the process to ensure other mistakes are not made. Miller said this is not her only recent problem with her voter registration. She said in August 2012 when she went to vote at the Collier House in Charlotte where she has always voted, she was told she was registered to vote in Sylvia, while her husband was still registered in Charlotte. She said a poll worker called Medley who said Miller’s only option was to vote in Sylvia. Medley said she was not familiar with that incident.
