Councilman Abstains from Election Certification Vote

Wednesday, October 12, 2016

Anniston City Councilman Seyram Selase chose not to participate in a vote to certify the results of last week's municipal runoff elections. Former councilman Ben Little defeated Selase for his Ward 3 seat by just 8 votes in the runoff. During today's council meeting, Selase said he was abstaining from the vote until some irregularities have been thoroughly investigated. After the election results from October 4th posted, Selase said he planned to look into the 19 absentee ballots cast in Little's favor, but he hasn't said whether he plans to file an official challenge before the October 17th deadline.
