Another candidate challenges St. Louis' primary election

Posted: Updated:

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- Just one day before a special election in St. Louis city, another candidate has filed an official challenge to the results of the August Democratic primary.

This is just another development in on-going concerns raised against the St. Louis Board of Elections. Shortly after the election, some people started claiming there was illegal activity that occurred with last month's primary, specifically with absentee ballots.

Rasheen Aldridge is now the very latest to step forward in court. Aldridge lost the race for 5th Ward Democratic Committeeman by 55 votes to Rodney Hubbard. Wednesday, he asked a judge for a new election, given the ballot irregularities.

Bruce Franks who lost the race for the state house seat in District 78th did the same thing over very similar allegations and has already won a new election. That vote is set for Friday.

There’s not quite the same rush for a new election though in Aldridge’s case they'd want a new election on the same day as the general, November 8th.

Of course, News 4 will let you know what the courts decide.
