Multiple cities fail to certify election results
JACKSON – Almost 50 cities have failed to certify election results with the Secretary of State’s office, including more than a dozen from Northeast Mississippi.
State law requires cities to submit certified election results to the Secretary of State’s Office within five days of the general election, which for the general election was June 11.
Forty-seven cities had not submitted results as of Friday.
“To promote open and public transparency, it is imperative cities timely file their certified election results with the Secretary of State’s Office,” said Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann. “The city and the public have a right to know the final election results, and the city should provide it in a timely fashion.”

• Abbeville (Lafayette County)
• Baldwyn (Lee and Prentiss counties)
