Bruce Garraway lost the Mayor’s race in Snellville by a slim 19 vote margin. It’s no surprise that he’d ask for a recount, but Garraway is also alleging problems with the conduct of the election and might seek legal action:
Garraway said supporters told him of problems at the polls, including some voters who filled out provisional ballots because they were not on registration rolls and one resident who “was denied the opportunity to vote completely.”
Garraway declined to discuss specifics of some of the complaints, saying he is consulting with an elections attorney.
In addition to questioning the accuracy of optical scan machines, Garraway said he heard of ethical problems in the operations at City Hall when polls were open.
“These are all questions that need to be answered,” he said. “In the end, the results may stay the same or they may change. … All these questions have created a cloud over this election.”
