Election Challenges

The results in at least two races are being challenged in Sumter County. Both involved a Democratic runoff election on June 25.

Juleme Delaine is challenging the outcome of her race for the Board of Education, District 3.

Delaine lost by roughly a 30-vote margin to Dana Thomas.

Incumbent County Commissioner Ben Walker is also contesting his loss to Dianne Greene by less than 20 votes.

The Democratic Executive Committee will hear the disputes on July 10.
