Write-In voting/New Machines

I've been told that the Election Commission has disabled write-in voting on new voting machines.
Is this true?
If it is, legal action needs to be taken to allow people to write-in when they vote!

Evidently, the EC decided to force write-in voters to an all-paper ballot. See John Harvey's place for more. They need to be asked why, to see if the purpose was rational and proper or not.

Unfortunately, the election commission has DISABLED write-in voting on new voting machines, so if you want to write in a vote you MUST ask for a paper ballot!

From the Shelby County Election Commission:

It is Commission policy that write-ins be disabled on the voting
machines. Any person choosing to write-in a candidates name for an
office will need to do so on a paper ballot.

You may address your concerns in written form to our Administrator of
Elections, James Johnson, and he will forward them to our Commissioners.
Our address is the Shelby County Election Commission, 157 Poplar Ave -
Suite 109, Memphis, TN 38103.
