Has anybody questioned her about her voting record? Or does she sidestep those type questions? I had no idea when early voting starts but I will be there early to vote against her.

Everyone needs to spread this all over Facebook and also share the link to her voting record. Just because she can afford to plaster her Photoshopped face on signs all over the place doesn't mean she is the right candidate for Bartow County.

Do you think she would do less of a job depending on who she voted for?
I disagree she is running for public office. So the way she votes is our business.

Mary, the database shows which primaries people voted in. If someone voted in the Democrat presidential primary (Melba Scoggins & Vicki Tatum Beck) then they had to have voted for either Obama or Hillary. Anyone who voted for either one of them does not have the judgement or credibility to be a Republican candidate. The real question for melba is WHY she voted for either Obama or Hillary?

There is no way to tell how Melba (or anyone else) voted in any presidential election. There is no way to determine how anyone votes. Period. The fact that she voted in the Democratic primary does necessarily mean she voted for the Democratic candidate in the presidential election. Many voters choose to vote in the opposing party's primary, for various reasons (e.g. in an effort elect a candidate who has a lower chance of beating their' party's candidate.)

like many, Melba runs now as a republican because a democrat can't get elected to anything in Bartow Co. now

I am not only concerned about how she voted, but I also now can't trust her. Gary Bell put a sign in my yard. She also asked given the location of the home to the court house. When she put her sign up she took his. Play fair Melba! I gave you an opportunity Melba. Gary, give me a bigger sign and you get to go back in my yard!

On the other hand I wouldn't want someone in office that voted strictly along party lines. That is a lot of what's wrong with this country today, vote for someone just because they are a democrat or a republican, etc.

In my lifetime I have voted for democrats, republicans, independents and even wrote in a time or two.

Local races are not about national party affiliation, thank goodness.

You are right, welfare has been around as long as people like you are here. Nobody said one word about him being black except you.

Typical democratic ploy. If you don't agree with a dem, you are automatically a racist. It is a shame they cannot offer an intelligent response, when they are asked a direct question. If you stump them, they immediately pull out the racist card.

My parents are strict Republicans and they have voted in the Democrat primaries several times to try and get the weaker candidate elected to be sure that the candidate they really wanted to win would win in the real election.

My vote for Melba is more than a vote for Melba... it's a vote against Gary Bell because he threatens his employees and is a liar. I've never heard those things about Melba.

Also, I've met a lot of Melba's family (and I'm not a "family friend") and I know that her family is made up of Republicans, so she was raised Republican and is now running Republican. Say what you want, but that's the truth.

Wrong! You cannot see how anyone voted, you can only see which primary one might have voted in.
Well looks like she certainly didn't vote republican every time right? That is the point Mary!

I don't know about Melba Scoggins, but there is a definite Democrat running in the State Senate 52 race. David Doss gave $1,000 to Roy Barnes in 2010 and said he would support a Democrat in this year's election for Floyd County sheriff against a Republican. He also called Roy Barnes conservative...watch these 2 videos...

In my opinion this is another case, of a less than adequate candidate running for office in Bartow County. Like they say, your word is your character. Poor choice, Melba! If you can't prove a track record of voting for ALL republicans and conservative issues you have no business running on the replican ticket.

So what is your suggestion for people who have voted both ways in the past? What do you expect them to run "as?" ALSO, a bigger and better topic is this::: WHY DOES THE POLITICAL AFFILIATION OF THE CLERK OF COURT EVEN MATTER?! Nothing they do even RELATES to whether they are Dem or Rep.

My comment on Dems pulling the race card, is not a vote against Melba. She is a fine Christian woman, which tells me a lot about character, which is something we need in Bartow County politics.

I agree Buzzword. I also am a republican in general, but have voted democrat in local elections before. Maybe that's what she did. Seems like Bell had democratic opposition last election. Maybe that was why??
