State Legislation
Reported by Main Street Nashville, although they get the bill number wrong (it's Senate Bill 1315):

The Tennessee legislature nearly unanimously approved a bill that requires the addition of a watermark on all absentee ballots.

The Tennessee Election Integrity Act would have little impact financially on local election commissions, according to the bill’s fiscal note.

Senate Bill 1314 passed the Senate, 27-0, on Monday, and the House adopted the Senate version of the bill Tuesday, 92-1. The bill will now head to Gov. Bill Lee to sign.

“Democrats are for secure elections,” Rep. Antonio Parkinson, D-Memphis, said Tuesday while praising the bill. “Don’t get it twisted.”

Rep. Bruce Griffey, R-Paris, said there are five vendors in the state that provide the paper for absentee ballots and all are able to put the watermarks on the ballot.

After some debate on the cost of previously purchased paper without the watermarks, Griffey said the estimated cost would be $105 per election commission.
