Rep. Vick, Sen. Pinckney election protests denied

The State

The November 27, 2012 edition of The State features an article entitled “Rep. Vick, Sen. Pinckney election protests denied” written by Jeffrey Collins.

Collins writes that “The South Carolina Election Commission turned aside protests Tuesday over Democratic State Rep. Ted Vick’s re-election in Chesterfield County and Democratic Sen. Clementa Pinckney’s re-election in the Lowcountry. South Carolina State Election Commission spokesman Chris Whitmire says commissioners voted 5-0 to deny a protest on Vick from Republican challenger Richie Yow. Yow contended some 2,000 votes were improperly cast by voters who did not live in Vick’s House district. Yow asked the commissioners to order a new election in House District 53, alleging that up to 2,000 ballots were illegally cast by people who didn’t live in the district, by people who moved and shouldn’t have been allowed to vote for the House race and through absentee ballots that were not cast properly. Vick won by 448 votes.”

Wyche attorneys, John Moylan and Matthew Richardson, defended Ted Vick’s election dispute and were pleased that the SC State Election Commission ruled unanimously in favor of their client.
