LITTLE ROCK, AR-- Friday night, Jefferson County election commissioners certified results from last weeks run off elections despite claims of questionable votes.
State law does not allow cross over voting, meaning a person can't vote Republican in the primaries, then Democrat during runoffs. But former candidate Dorothy Hall says after her research, she found 68 people who did submit a cross over vote.
"Visiting with voters throughout the district, I heard a lot of frustration with election process and the political process as a whole," said Hall.
Despite Hall's complaint, the election commission decided to certify the results anyway.
"The numbers are the numbers. We don't have the ability to say we are going to sit on this or wait or change them, the numbers are the numbers and we certified them today," said commission chairman Trey Ashcraft.
The chairman says, as a commission, they don't have the authority to disqualify votes, only a circuit judge can take that action.
Hall says her complaint is more about maintaining voting integrity.
"I never came over here thinking it would change the outcome of the election. I'm just a person who stands up for what is right," said Hall.
Also, the election commission is looking into how the poll workers allowed this to happen, saying they could possibly be fired.
