Willie Sloan, who had the second-highest number of votes for the sheriff’s nomination last Saturday, has filed a grievance with the state Democratic Party.
John Ingram was named the nominee after defeating Sloan by 13.5 votes.
Sloan filed a grievance with the state Democratic Party Friday, saying the Brunswick County Democratic Party Executive Committee violated state party rules.
N.C. Democratic Party Chairman Jerry Meek said Sloan alleges four of the people who voted in Saturday’s election also serve as elections officials at polling locations.
