Special Election on December 20th!

Monday, December 5, 2011, 4:13 pm News Flash Archive

The Acting Governor, William G. Hewes III, signed an order on November 30th calling for a special election on December 20th to fill the Supervisor District 3 seat.

This special election followed a court decision to throw out the primary and general elections due to absentee ballot fraud in the August primary.

The Writ specifically orders that only three candidates, Anjuan Brown, Preston Ratliff (the incumbent) and Charles McCain will be on the election ballot.

A majority of the vote is required to win the seat. A run-off will be held January 10th if none of the candidates secures a majority on December 20th.

Interestingly, the Writ was signed November 30th, but apparently nobody in Leflore County government received a copy until this morning.
