Councilman Eddie Smotherman talks wtih WGNS' Bryan Barrett

Murfreesboro voters overwhelmingly voted yes on a referendum to move the Murfreesboro municipal elections to August instead of April. The vote was 85.7% to move the election to 14.2% to leave it in April. Councilman Eddie Smotherman brought this up during a recent city council meeting, asking the council to allow citizens to vote on whether or not they'd like to move the election date. Smotherman says this election cycle, with just over 11-percent of registered voters casting a ballot, is a perfect example of why the date should be changed...


With the passage of the referendum, the next Murfreesboro city election will be held in August of 2016. This will extend the current term by a few months of councilmen and school board members who are up for reelection in 2016.
