MADISON — Madison residents won’t be heading to the polls Tuesday along with voters in neighboring communities. There’s no need for an election in the Mississippi city because the mayor and seven Board of Aldermen members aren’t facing any opposition.

The Clarion-Ledger reports that a Mississippi state law holds that municipalities shouldn’t hold a general election if all races are unopposed.

Madison City Clerk Susan Crandall said the election process ended with the certification of the May 7 Republican primary results. Mayor Mary Hawkins Butler defeated Republican challenger John Bell Crosby.

Other Madison County communities will hold general elections for city officers on Tuesday.
