The photo below was taken at a fundraiser I attended where I was in support of a Democratic Candidate. I attend various functions in an attempt to support all of our Candidates seeking our Democratic Nomination. In my capacity as Chair, I am the voice and face of the Democratic Party therefore I do not endorse in Primary Elections.

Beware of Rogue Ballots

April 25, 2014

Shelby County Democratic Party Chairman Warns Voters About Rogue Ballots.

Chairman Bryan Carson has issued a warning to all voters that multiple ballots are being mailed or distributed during the Democratic Primary elections and they are not officially sanctioned by the Shelby County Democratic Party. The Party neither endorses candidates nor does it produce a ballot during a primary.

Some individuals produce ballots as a profit making venture during election season at the expense of the candidates. These individuals are not necessarily concerned with who the best candidates are but which candidates can afford to pay to be on their ballots.

Many candidates are not listed on these ballots primarily because they chose not to pay the exorbitant costs to be included. In those cases, the opposing candidates are solicited and listed, if the fee is paid.

Chairman Carson stated “These unofficial ballots are not a reliable, valid or sanctioned voting guide. Voters should avoid using these rogue ballots as a basis for making voting decisions.”

A complete listing of Democratic Primary candidates can be found on the Shelby County Democratic Party’s website,, or the Election Commission’s website at
