Fourth District Judge Claudia Laycock ordered the county earlier this month to re-do the GOP primary election after seven improperly counted ballots and a voter turned away from the polling place cast doubt on incumbent Jim Withers’ five-vote win over challenger Jim Dyer.

Fourth District Judge Claudia Laycock’s ruling — the first of its kind in recent memory — has left officials scratching their heads, however, since it appears state law does not give the judge the authority to order a new election.
