|Alabama||Election contest: Oren Fannin v. Karen Berry||2008-11||Pike County commission||2008-12||Election contest||Absentee/Mail||Ineligible district voting||10||After nearly a year in office, Pike County Commissioner Karen Berry was ordered to vacate her District 6 seat to challenger Oren Fannin when a judge ruled that 10 votes were cast illegally for Berry in the November 2008 election. Berry was originally declared the winner by a six-vote margin, but Fannin contested the results. All 10 illegal votes were cast by absentee ballot. Three invalid ballots were stipulated by both parties, since Carl, Mary and Brandon Kidd cast absentee ballots for Berry but lived outside District 6. Another three voters - Tiffany Paige Gray, Norman Lyn Gray and Nerita Hinkle - all testified to voting for Fannin but also lived outside the district. Berry herself also pleaded guilty to charges of voter fraud and perjury for mailing an illegal absentee ballot.||Results overturned - Fannin declared winner||http://www.troymessenger.com/2009/10/02/fannin-declared-district-6-winner/|
