After a technical glitch resulted in the release of incorrect results of the Sunday Sales vote in Forest Park, two candidates for City Council in that city are complaining about more changing vote totals.
Warren Gerton, candidate for City Council Ward 5, and Lillian Holloway, who was running for City Council Ward 4, are demanding a new election.
“We’ve had callers solicit us that said, ‘My vote only had one candidate and there should have been three.’ Or, ‘I was given the wrong ward to vote in.’ Or, ‘There were no candidates on my ballot at all, just the alcohol referendum,’” said Holloway.
Both candidates said they’re sending letters to the Secretary of State, the Attorney General, the Clayton County District Attorney and the Board of Elections.
Forest Park Elections Superintendent Dave Painters said he had no comment at this time.
To give credit where it’s due, I first saw this story on 11Alive but couldn’t find the story on their website to link to.
