BAKER CO., GA (WALB) -

Weeks after judge order a recall in the Baker County Sheriff's race due allegations of voter irregularities an appeal could affect the new election.

It's currently slated for January 8th but Sheriff Dana Meade appealed to reverse the decision that tossed out results of the August runoff.

Meade beat Tim Williamson in the August runoff by 39 votes, but Williamson sued.

The results were tossed out after Judge Gray found evidence of vote buying and altered absentee ballots.

 Now Williamson is waiting to find out if he will get the chance to campaign again for Sheriff, a position he says he can do better than Meade.

"Better law enforcement, meet the people better, of course every town has drugs, but we are going to be real aggressive on the drugs, and we are also going to try to do as good as we can with the children, because that's where it starts," said Tim Williamson, Baker Co. Sheriff Candidate.

That appeal is in the hands of the state Supreme Court. County officials tell us until further notice, the January 8th election will go on as planned
