Stupid town 'forgets' to hold 2009 elections. Can't provide records that show election results from 2005 and 2007.

DESOTO, GA – Two members of the city council in a small Sumter County town weren't actually elected to those posts.

No one in the city realized they were supposed to hold an election last year.

The Secretary of State's office says they better fix it soon.

They face seven potential violations, including failing to publish public notice 30 days prior to the election, and failing to appoint an election superintendent.

"We just forgot it, that's the only thing that happened we just forgot it," said Addie Cutts, City of DeSoto Councilwoman.

She said no one in the city council ever raised the question of holding elections in 2009 during their regular scheduled meetings.

"We never mentioned it, not to my knowledge," said Cutts.

DeSoto is in Sumter County and population is 204. The city has 100 registered to vote; Cutts said the voting mistake is being rectified.

"The mayor said he was going to let someone who handles elections do it for us every year so we won't forget it," said Cutts.

Councilwoman Cutts told WALB the state gave them until March to hold the election.

DoSoto also faces other violations because they can't provide records that show election results from 2005 and 2007.

  • "DoSoto also faces other violations because they can't provide records that show election results from 2005 and 2007"

    Freaking obama freeloaders -- they "create" their own town wiith only 200 people so they can get money/freebies from the federal gov't -- this sounds more like a big scam to me.

  • not much different from local politics anywhere. only item of interest is there isn't a racial divide that news outlets can use for some kind of gain. No big bad white man running the city council. Just Granny be-Jeezus in her Diner. If she was a Dumb-Ass-Cracker, her words would spark (contrived) outrage and lots of media coverage.

  • The only offense is a corporate administrative offense .. hardly criminal.

    Besides, in a town of 204, nobody complained .. the state's SOS handled it correctly by simply advising they have to hurry up and do it "by the book" if they want to be a town and not just a independent community.
