Kelly Horwitz formally challenges votes in Tuscaloosa Board of Education Dist. 4 election

Posted: Updated:
TUSCALOOSA, AL -

Tuscaloosa Board of Education incumbent Kelly Horwitz has formally challenged votes in the District 4 election this August.

Horwitz filed paperwork Friday challenging 397 votes cast at the Calvary Baptist Church annex on Aug. 27.

Court documents allege that "votes were tainted by emails, Facebook messages, and other communications directed at the voter by representatives of his or her fraternity or sorority which endorsed Cason Kirby and which offered voters a free alcoholic beverage (or wristband redeemable for a free alcoholic beverage) if they voted in the election, or which offered other gifts which were expressly made contingent on voting in the election." 

Many of the voters outlined in court documents are also accused of not meeting residency requirements to vote in this election.

The matter is scheduled for a court hearing tomorrow morning.
