Americus- The Secretary of State's office is investigating two election complaints in Americus.
The local NAACP and Sumter County Elections supervisor Sherry Ratliff both filed complaints. They say wrong election day information was published in the local newspaper and there were problems with absentee voter cards. The NAACP claims absentee voting problems at Magnolia Manor are common.
"Every time we have to deal with elections, it's not always a black person. We've got somebody running for Governor and Secretary of State and if they want to make the swing and use this advantage with this nursing home they can do it with any election, not just black, white," said Dr. James Marshall, Americus NAACP President.
The investigator's finding will be presented to the State Board of Elections in March. Barry Blount easily won the November election. Those who filed the complaints say the just want to avoid problems in the future.
