Tom McFarland filed a complaint in Roane County Chancery Court on Wednesday contesting the Aug. 7 election.
McFarland ran for circuit court judge of the 9th Judicial District and was defeated by Mike Pemberton.
Pemberton, the Roane County Election Commission and Tennessee Coordinator of Elections Mark Goins are named as defendants in the complaint.
McFarland is asking that the election be voided. Pemberton said he hadn’t seen the complaint, but wasn’t surprised one was filed.
