Hudson’s protest dismissed in Lexington County Council race

— Lexington County election officials on Monday dismissed a second-place finisher’s protest involving pre-election paperwork.

Darrell Hudson’s appeal to try to claim a seat on Lexington County Council did not have anything to do with voting problems, elections director Dean Crepes said in releasing the decision.

Hudson, a petition candidate, lost to Republican Kent Collins in the Nov. 6 general election.

Hudson asked officials to declare Collins ineligible to hold the post in District 3, which includes most of the town of Lexington and areas to its north and west. Hudson alleged that Collins did not comply with state ethics rules on disclosure of personal finances.
