Some candidates who lost the primaries in Clayton County have filed a complaint with state officials. Those candidates are questioning the results and blame the local elections supervisor.

A former candidate for a state house seat and three for the Clayton County school board want state authorities to launch an investigation into the county’s elections director.

All the candidates lost either in the primary or the runoff.

Bright told the Clayton News Daily Friday she was unaware of the accusations and declined to comment.
