Court Proceedings
Self v. Mitchell Election Contest - Part 1
Monday, February 24, 2020

Running Time 221 min
First Posted on Monday, February 24, 2020 at 7:02 pm
Wayne Self contested the election of his opponent, Eric Mitchell, to the Supervisor District 4 position.

Special Judge Jeff Weill presided over the election contest. Both parties waived the right to a trial by jury, so Judge Weill will make the decision.

Wayne Self is represented by Jackson attorney Margarette Meeks. Eric Mitchell is represented by Greenville attorney Willie Griffin.

A good part of the first day was spent with the lawyers going through ballot boxes and marking items as exhibits to speed the proceedings.

The trial will continue Tuesday morning.
