Albany-- Deputy coroner Jack Camp was disqualified after questions about his place of residence were raised. The Dougherty County Board of Elections investigation revealed that Camp had registered to vote in Worth County in 2002 and did vote in the November election.

Qualified candidates must live in Dougherty County for at least two years prior to running for the office. Camp said he resided in Dougherty County during that time frame, but the board ruled that his voter registration in Worth County was reason enough for his disqualification from the Republican primary.

Republican candidate Jason Thornhill raised the questions about Camp's residency. This leaves Thornhill the only Republican candidate running for coroner.
