Del. Election Chief Won't Intervene in Newark Race

Posted: Updated:

NEWARK, Del. (AP) - Delaware's election commissioner says she won't intervene in a special election for Newark mayor despite some residents' allegations of possible election-law violations.

A group of citizens had asked to postpone certification of last week's election, which candidate Polly Sierer won by 115 votes.

The residents have requested an investigation into the activities of an advocacy group they say collaborated with Sierer's campaign. Sierer denied any coordination between her campaign and the political action committee, called I Like Polly's Plan.

State Election Commissioner Elaine Manlove won't sue on the residents' behalf. She says even if the allegations amounted to campaign finance violations, there's no proof the conduct affected the election's outcome.

The results are to be certified Tuesday evening by Newark's election board.
