DREW, Miss. (AP) - Jeffrey Kilpatrick has been elected as mayor of Drew.

The Bolivar Commercial reports (http://bit.ly/1qUco17 ) Kilpatrick won an election held Tuesday in the town in the Mississippi Delta. Also on the ballot were Harvey Burchfield and John Thigpen.

The election was a result of a protest filed by Kilpatrick just two days after the election in June 2013 when Burchfield received 18 more votes than Kilpatrick.

Kilpatrick argued were problems with affidavit ballots.

Circuit Judge Samac Richardson ruled in favor of Kilpatrick and ordered a new election. Richardson ruled because of the multiple irregularities and the number of illegal votes counted put the will of the voters in question.
