SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) - A new Worth County commissioner could be sworn in even though technically he shouldn't have been allowed to run for office.
26-year-old Matt Medders beat incumbent Dan Miller by 208 votes in the August 5th Democratic runoff and was unopposed in the general election.
But Worth County Code states that county commission candidates must be 27-years old. Election officials said they were unaware of the rule.
Any qualified voter in the county could challenge the election in the Superior Court, but no one has so far.Feedback
