Governor Sets Two Dates for Leflore County Special Elections


GREENWOOD, Miss.–Election fraud in last year’s primary election is the reason Gov. Tate Reeves says he’s set a date for two special elections in LeFlore County.

The elections are April 16, for Chancery Clerk and District 4 Supervisor.
“An appointed retired Mississippi Supreme court judge found clear and convincing evidence of election fraud, as well as serious violations of Mississippi Election code in the Democratic primary,” said Reeves in a Facebook post.
Reeves said the court found evidence of ballot harvesting, improper counting of “dozens of illegal absentee ballots”, and a denial of te public’s right to observe the counting of absentee ballots. In addition, Reeves said there was failure to secure ballot boxes, failure to maintain accurate voter logbooks and irregularities in affidavit balloting.
