JUDICIAL DECISIONS

Editor's notes.

- In light of the similarity of the statutory provisions, decisions under former Code 1933, § 34A-110 and former Code Section 21-3-7 are included in the annotations for Subpart 1.

Duty of board to be knowledgeable.

- The decision whether to exercise the right to intervene in municipal election contests requires that the State Election Board be aware of the nature of the proceedings and of problems encountered in elections and election contests in order that it may properly perform its duties. Lyde v. City of Brunswick, 241 Ga. 554, 246 S.E.2d 673 (1978) (decided under former Code 1933, § 34A-110).

Petition seeking mandamus requiring officials to administer oath to elected candidates.

- A petition seeking mandamus requiring city officials to administer the oath of office to persons who claim to have been elected as write-in candidates in a municipal election requires notice to the State Election Board, and the omission of the required notice constitutes a fatal defect. Lucken v. Falligant, 243 Ga. 816, 256 S.E.2d 788 (1979) (decided under former Code 1933, § 34A-110).
