The State Supreme Court heard arguments Monday on whether to order a new election for sheriff in Baker County. The case follows allegations of vote rigging. The decision may turn on the number of illegal votes.
Voters in Baker County may have to wait until January to decide who their next sheriff will be. Judge Loring Gray had ordered that Sheriff Dana Meade and challenger Tim Williamson would have to face off again after determining there was sufficient evidence of voting irregularities to cast doubt on the Aug. 21 runoff.
