HATTIESBURG — City of Hattiesburg residents head to the polls today for a rematch in the city’s mayoral race.
Democratic Hattiesburg Mayor Johnny DuPree recorded 37 more votes than his challenger, Independent Dave Ware, in a June 4 election.
The new election was called by Judge William Coleman after a mistrial was declared in a suit brought by Ware, challenging the outcome.
Polls will open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.
