ALBANY, GA (WALB) - State election officials are launching their own investigation into the handling of a mentally challenged man's vote.
Secretary of State Karen Handle's office contacted WALB Thursday to tell us they asked the Office of Inspector General to investigate Jack Justice's voting experience.
Wednesday, the Albany Area Community Service Board which oversees Primus Industries said they will bring in an external agency to investigate allegations made by Justice.
He told his family that an aide from Primus took him and five other mentally challenged clients to vote and forced them to vote for Barack Obama.
Justice says he told the aide he wanted to vote for John McCain, but was overridden.
Election officials say if that happened, the aide will face criminal charges.
