LUMBERTON, MS (WDAM) -

The voters of Lumberton could have as many as three candidates on the ballot for the Dec. 15 special mayoral election.

City Hall officials told  WDAM 7 News that three names were filed for the city's top spot, and the election committee is currently reviewing those candidates for final qualification.

The filing period ended Tuesday, and the election committee is expected to announce the final candidates early next week.

The Lumberton Board of Aldermen set a special election date after former Mayor Ben Winston resigned earlier this month.

Interim mayor Cora Rogers said she would not seek Winston's seat.

The special election on Dec. 15 will run just like other elections, with polls open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.
