DescriptionAn appellate court has ruled that Democratic attorney general candidate Scott Drury can remain on ballots for the March 20 primary.

The court ruled Friday. A judge had previously determined that the state legislator running for statewide office couldn't be on the ballot over paperwork issues. Drury immediately appealed.

The case is one reason that early voting has been delayed in parts of the state with election officials awaiting a final decision before they print ballots.

Drury is a state representative from Highwood and among eight Democrats seeking the party's nomination. The case hinged on whether he properly submitted a statement of economic interest to election officials.

Drury's campaign says he complied with the requirements. Drury says he's pleased with the decision.
