Who says elections can’t be decertified? A 2020 local election in Florida just was.
According to a report, in a recent court ruling, a judge overturned the results of a 2020 town council election in Florida.
The attorney for the man who eventually won the election claimed that there were illegal votes cast and fraudulent votes cast and the judge agreed. The man who won the race was awarded the win.
The race was in Eatonville, Florida.

More than 19 months after Tarus Mack was certified the winner of an Eatonville Town Council election, a judge has ordered Mack to be removed from his position due to evidence uncovered by his opponent suggesting votes were illegally cast or procured.
“I was very ecstatic,” Marlin Daniels said, who learned this week he had prevailed in his lawsuit challenging the election results. “Immediately I said, ‘Let’s get to work.’ We have to fix things that have been going wrong in this historic town and make things right, not for me, but for the people.”
Days after a judge ruled Daniels was entitled to the Eatonville Town Council seat, Mack filed a motion asking for a new trial.
