“Mr. Blalock was a mailman for 33 years until he passed away in 2006. Fourteen years later, according to state records, he was still mailing things. James Blalock cast a ballot in last week’s election,” Tucker Carlson said in a clip and story labeled on Fox News’ website as an opinion piece.
However, 11Alive was able to find out that James Blalock did not vote in last week’s election. Mrs. James Blalock did vote.
“He’s not voting. He didn’t vote,” Agnes Blalock told 11Alive. “It was me.”
Newton County officials confirmed that Agnes Blalock voted using her married name.
“Her voter registration was signed as Mrs. James E. Blalock, Jr. and that is exactly how she signed her name when she voted in the Nov. 3 general election,” officials said.
