Alabama candidate disqualified for late campaign finance report

The Ledger-Enquirer reports: On Nov. 2, Russell County [Alabama] voters will pick between Republicans, Democrats and Independents for county commission seats -- except in District 5, where the ballot will be blank.

Commission Chairwoman Cattie Epps, the current District 5 commissioner, will not be on the ballot after a judge ruled against her Friday.

Specially appointed Judge Dale Segrest ruled that Epps did not turn in her required campaign finance reports on time for the June primary, and therefore was not a valid candidate in the November general election. -- Epps won't be on ballot (Columbus GA Ledger-Enquirer )
