Board of Elections Considers Mount Gilead Voter Protests

The Montgomery County Board of Elections is conducting a hearing this morning to determine the legitimacy of protests filed regarding the Nov. 8 municipal elections. Specifically, 13 protests allege that voters were unfairly denied the right to vote in the Mount Gilead contests for mayor and town commissioner.

For this hearing, the board had requested that Mount Gilead town manager Katrina Tatum, town clerk Mary Lucas and town attorney Max Garner all be present to answer questions, and the board will also hear from any citizens who wish to be heard on the matter.

We’re continuing to cover the hearing and will bring you more information as soon as it is available.
