Suspended  Carter County Sheriff Milton Anthony has removed his name from the November General Election ballot.

Election Board Secretary Diane Hall confirmed Anthony struck his name from the ballot this morning.

“Today at 5 p.m. was the deadline for removing your name if it was on the ballot. He did take his name off the ballot and it will not appear. After today the ballots will be printed,” Hall said.

Anthony was facing Republican candidate Chris Bryant for the post.
