Atlanta-- House District 151 candidate Phil Cannon's voting registry was the subject of a hearing in the state capital Thursday. Now the Secretary of State will decide if he is an eligible candidate for the General Assembly.

Cannon admits he was not a registered Dougherty County voter when he qualified to run. The Albany attorney had filled out a voter registration card earlier this year at a public event, but the paperwork was not filed.

Cannon says until recently he has focused on family and business. "And I want to be involved in politics, and I'm now trying to start that action. It's unfortunate that minor things occur that other people tend to make a big deal out of."

Judge Elbert Hackery heard the complaint filed against Cannon's voter registration. The judge will make his recommendation to the Secretary of State, who will make the final decision.
