TEP state legislative candidate surveys: Equality on the ballot

The following state legislative candidates (TN Senate and TN House) turned in surveys to Tennessee Equality Project by the September 17 deadline. TEP did not survey in all legislative races. For example, there is only one candidate in many races where an incumbent is seeking reelection.  In some races in which we sent out surveys, no candidate responded. 

Candidates are listed within their district in the order in which they responded to the survey.
