Individuals who are seeking higher office and elected officials holding office are subject to challenges to their eligibility. In addition, not every election is correctly conducted. In some instances, voters within entire precincts, wards or even cities can be disenfranchised.
Mr. O’Dell has successfully handled each of the last three election disputes in Cobb County. He successfully argued and overturned the 2006 Kennesaw Mayor’s election due to voter irregularities, successfully defended the challenge to the candidacy of a Marietta City Councilman and successfully set aside and obtained a new election regarding Sunday Sales of alcohol in Cobb County. The latter was due to failure to comply with State Legislation creating voter disenfranchisement within the municipalities and cities of Cobb County.
