Dems, mayoral candidate wants city election monitored

MERIDIAN — A candidate for mayor in Meridian has joined with the Lauderdale County Democratic Party in asking the U.S. Department of Justice to monitor the June 4 Meridian election.

A party spokesman and mayoral candidate Percy Bland both told the Meridian Star they had made the request.

Bland said he wants to make sure voters are not turned away or intimidated.

Yesterday, a Justice Department official said the department never announces its intent to monitor an election until the day before the election.
