Two Counties Disenfranchised in GOP Judicial Race

Posted by |

The 7th Court of Appeals serves 46 counties and this year Chief Justice and Place 4 were on the GOP Primary ballot for all but two of them. Voters in Cochran County and Collingsworth County were denied the right to vote in these races because they were left off the ballot

Civil Rights Violated

The Chief Justice race was uncontested, but the race for Place 4 was decided by only 319 votes. Challenger Steven Denny received 46,002 votes to the incumbent Larry Doss’s 45,683 votes. Cochran County had a 26% turnout with 458 casting a ballot. Collingsworth County had a turnout of 38% with 723 voters. These are small counties, but either could have flipped the election. However, these voters were not given the opportunity to vote. The voices of 1181 citizens were silenced, and their civil rights were violated.
