Fiona Prine, wife of the late legendary musician and songwriter John Prine, testified today before the Tennessee Senate’s State and Local Government Committee, sharing her personal experience with COVID-19, and urging the Committee to temporarily expand absentee voting for the November 2020 election.

Her testimony is available for viewing here; forward to the 56:30 mark.

Quotes from Prine’s testimony include:

“I am a survivor of COVID-19. I experienced many of the well-documented and debilitating symptoms associated with this virus, but I did eventually recover. My husband John Prine was not so fortunate. I do not wish this pain and trauma on any other American family and especially not my fellow Tennesseans.”

“The threat of contracting COVID-19 is a serious health concern, particularly for those with pre-existing conditions. Voters should not be forced to choose between their health and their constitutional right to vote.”

“I hope our legislators will agree to temporarily expanding absentee voting in this great state of Tennessee.”

Join Prine in urging TN lawmakers to make voting safe by expanding TN’s absentee voting system to all registered voters this November. Make your voices heard by visiting: https://thechangeagentcy.com/votesafetn/
