County in dispute with insurer over tornado-damaged voting machines
Published: August 13,2013
HATTIESBURG — The Forrest County Board of Supervisors is at odds with its insurer over replacing voting machines damaged in the Feb. 10 tornado.
The roof of the county election commission building was severely damaged, exposing the electronic voting machines to rain in the days after the devastating storm.
Board president David Hogan tells The Hattiesburg American he and fellow supervisors do not want to use any of the machines to conduct elections.
Hogan says the county wants all of the damaged machines replaced.
But, the county’s insurer is offering to replace only six and clean another 20 machines.
Hogan says the county has retained an independent adjuster to negotiate with the county’s insurer to replace the machines.
