Nine hundred people turn out for last day of early voting on Nashville becoming largest U.S. city to mandate only English language in city operations

WSMV Channel 4 reports this evening that 900 people turned out on the last day of early voting on the EnglishOnly referendum in Nashville.

In all, an impressive 14,000 people have voted early on the referendum that would make Nashville the largest city in America mandating only English in city operations.

Channel 4 reports that polling shows voters split on the referendum with 21% of Metro residents still undecided.

Tomorrow, Corinthian Baptist Church will hold a multi-racial King Day service beginning at 11 a.m. to encourage the African-American community to vote against the referendum. The church is led by the Rev. Enoch Fuzz, co-chair of the Music City USA Inaugural Ball Tuesday night at the Maxwell Millennium House Hotel in Nashville.

Pity country music superstar Barbara Mandrell. She was caught by Channel 4 on film in line for early voting despite a black coat and sunglasses to disguise herself. Three cheers to here for still voting.
