Polls in Lauderdale County prepare for run-off election

August 26, 2019




The polls will open in Mississippi tomorrow but most importantly in Lauderdale County for the Democratic and Republican run-off election.

 “In Lauderdale County alone, you have two real important offices. You’ve got Governor and you’ve got attorney general, and on the democratic side, you have the public service commissioner Central District. All 40 of our precincts will be open,” said Donna Jill Johnson, Lauderdale County Circuit Clerk.


The seats for governor, Attorney General, and a Public Service Commissioner are all up for grabs.


The polls will open at 7 Am and 7 PM.



“Make sure you bring your picture id. If you have your voter registration card it often helps the poll workers for some reason. If you did not get to vote in the primary, you’re eligible to vote tomorrow,” said Donna Jill Johnson, Lauderdale County Circuit Clerk.


 There will be run-offs for Democratic and Republican seats.


 “You have the public service commissioner district, you have Dorothy “Dot Benford and Keyford Stamps. If you happened to live in supervisor district two, we have a run-off with Ms. Lorretta “Lo Lo” Bennet.You have two state offices with the governor Tate Reeves and Bill Waller.said Donna Jill Johnson," said Donna Jill Johnson, Lauderdale County Circuit Clerk.



 “In the state of Mississippi, you have to have the write in space in case by instance a candidate dies and of course that’s not the situation. We want to stress it does not count instead of the people taking the time to skip it rather than writing something in,” said Donna Jill Johnson, Lauderdale County Circuit Clerk.
