Secretary of State will send monitors to special election

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

A date for the Hattiesburg's special election has not been set by Governor Phil Bryant yet.

Meanwhile a spokesperson with the Secretary of State confirms that they will send observers to monitor the special election. However they say election fraud prosecutorial authority ultimately lies with the attorney general and district attorney. The Secretary of State's office also says all candidates who were on the ballot in the general election should also be on the special election ballot.

Hattiesburg residents who registered for the general election do not need to register again. For those who want to vote in the special election and haven't registered, keep in mind you must be registered to vote 30 days prior to the election. Though there's no guarantee Governor Phil Bryant will schedule the election 30 days from now.
