Elections – Municipal – Election Protest – Delay – Incumbents in Office (access required)

Cole v. Atlantic Beach Election Commission Respondent’s delays in hearing an election protest, issuing its decision, and ordering a transcript of its hearings allowed incumbents to remain in office (for nearly two years now) after the appellant-challengers garnered more votes in the town council election.
