Sumter and Lee Counties-- The Independent hopeful in the Sumter County Sheriff's race, Nelson Brown, will not appear on the November Ballot.

The Board of Elections ruled he did not have enough signatures. His petitions had come into question after it was realized the notary public who signed off on his petitions also signed the petition as an elector.

A similar situation is happening in the Lee County Sheriff's race.

The Board of Elections there is questioning Independent candidate Jimmy Kerfoot's signed petitions.

The notary public who signed most of Kerfoot's petitions is his aunt, Mertle Parsons. That is not the problem though.

Her name also appears on the list of supporters and that may be illegal.

Kerfoot says he followed the directions given to him by Elections Supervisor Veronica Johnson, "You know Veronica was the one that told me not to let my aunt notarize the one she had signed so we did that. Now we are here where we are now. I am concerned, because I have got a lot of money, a lot of time, a lot of emotion in this thing."

Kerfoot's hearing is Wednesday at 11 in the morning.
