Ware vs. DuPree Day 2: Plaintiff, expert witness testify

Plaintiff Dave Ware was first to take the stand on the second day of testimony in the Hattiesburg Mayoral Election Challenge trial. The most lengthy testimony of the day came from Pete Perry, who was called as an expert witness by the Ware group.

He testified that Mayor DuPree's wife Johneice DuPree delivered absentee ballots to the jail, but failed to sign a certificate of delivery. 36 ballots were cast and returned from the jail.

Out of 580 absentee ballots, only 0.2% were rejected by the election commission, but Perry says about 65% were cast illegally.

Statute requires voters to sign a receipt book. Out of all precincts in Lamar and Forrest County, Perry testified that the Rowan precinct had the highest number of missing signatures. The Johnny DuPree team will get their turn to go at Pete Perry on Monday, and the trial is expected to last until at least Tuesday.
