Lenox - A South Georgia mayor elect is disqualified from the election, but could still serve as mayor.

Paul Harvey the third beat Lenox Mayor Dan Robinson 88 votes to 59 votes Tuesday. But shortly after his victory, he suffered a defeat. He was disqualified because he's not even a registered voter in that town.

Poll workers got suspicious when Harvey never showed up to vote so they called the Secretary of State's office, and he's a registered voter in another town. "They said he is registered in Warner Robins, but is on the inactive list because he did not participate in two of their general elections," said Vicki Parrish, Cook County Assistant Elections Superintendent.

The Secretary of State says Harvey can still be sworn in unless someone files a complaint within five days. No one has done so yet.

The case could be decided by a superior court judge.
