(MUNCIE) - Democrat James Mansfield says he won't appeal a recent court ruling upholding Sharon Mcshurley's November 2007 election win as Muncie mayor.

the Indiana Court Appeals affirmed a trial court's decision last week to deny Mansfield's request for a special election for voters in precinct 46, where absentee ballots were disqualified.

Mansfield said he had continued the appeals process to fight for the constitutional right of disenfranchised voters.

Mansfield had hoped that a flaw in state election law that allowed no appeal for the loser in an election recount could be changed so future candidates did not face a similar problem.

Mansfield says he plans a run for mayor again in 2011. He is currently the executive director of the Muncie Visitors Bureau.
