Another turn in Drew Mayoral dispute

Chicot Memorial

Drew will schedule another election for mayor. An election was held on June 4th, 2013 with Harvey Burchfield, Jeffrey Kilpatrick and John Thigpen with Burchfield as the winner by a slim margin, but a judge has ruled that the election must be re-done, on the grounds that too many votes are in question due to votes from people who were not registered, had been removed from the voter rolls, didn’t sign affidavit ballots or voted in the wrong district. There were also allegations from Kilpatrick that Burchfield paid some people to vote for him, which he has strongly denied.
