Jackson County's 5 Election Commissioners has begun the review of the Fair precinct in the District 111 House race between Rep. Brandon Jones (D-Pascagoula) and Charles Busby (R-Pascagoula).
The Election Commission (a majority Republican body) voted unanimously yesterday to examine the poll books in Fair to determine whether or not voters in that precinct received the correct ballots on election day. The Fair precinct is split 6 ways, meaning there are 6 different ballot styles for that precinct.
Nearly 1,500 people voted in the Fair precinct on election day. There is a 35 vote difference between Jones and Busby, meaning that errors in distributing 35 or more of the approximately 1,500 ballots would place the election in limbo.
