Campaign workers continue to sift through ballots in Hub City
Published: June 18,2013
HATTIESBURG — Campaign workers for Dave Ware who came out 37 votes short of being elected mayor of Hattiesburg have wrapped up their inspection of the ballots.
Mayor Johnny DuPree’s campaign workers are doing the same thing today.
The Hattiesburg American reports Dupree must be finished by midnight today because state law allows a 12-day window for candidate ballot inspections after the examination by the election commission.
Ware lost the election by 37 votes to DuPree in the June 4 election. Included in that is a 181-vote margin in absentee votes won by DuPree that helped push the incumbent over the top.
Now Ware must decide whether to challenge the election results in court.
