TUSKEGEE, AL (WSFA)- A judge has dismissed a lawsuit Tuesday contesting city council election results in Tuskegee, finding the plaintiffs did not prove their case.
The plaintiffs had allege fraud and irregularities in the August 2012 municipal election
"When you see things that aren't right, you have to say something or they will continue to happen," said Brooke Moore-White, a former candidate for City Council.
Moore-White and Voter Leon E. Frazier are plaintiffs in the suit, and argued they could prove people who live outside the city voted in the August election.
The allegations are significant because Ala Whitehead won the District Two race by only three votes. The plaintiffs alleged the combination of votes that were illegal and legal votes that were not counted would change the outcome of the race.
The judge disagreed, and Whitehead sounded relieved after the trial was over.
