GREENWOOD, MS (Ben Caxton) — The Leflore County District 4 Supervisor race isn’t over yet, despite the winner, challenger Eric Mitchell having been sworn in last Friday. Former incumbent Wayne Self, who has held the seat as supervisor for 20 years has filed an election challenge that will be heard on February 24 at the Leflore County Courthouse by Special Circuit Judge Jeff Weill Sr. Self claims that a number of absentee ballots were counted when they should not have been and that there were irregularities in securing ballot boxes and wants to be declared the winner or have a new election called. Mitchell in his response says Self’s complaints are not legally relevant and that he has provided no grounds for disenfranchising voters by not counting their ballots. Mitchell won the election by 16 votes.[sc name=”twitterfollow”]
