OF NOTE: Newly-elected state Rep. Kimberly Remak offered this statement Wednesday morning after her election victory.
“I’m excited to get to work in Jackson!” Remak said. “It’s time DeSoto County businesses and residents reap the benefits of being one of the top local economies in the state. I look forward to building strong relationships in Jackson and working closely with our local officials to improve our quality of life. From day one, I will work tirelessly to curb wasteful spending, build our economy, fight violent crime, and strengthen our schools. I will always uphold conservative values. This approach will make our community a better place to live, raise a family, and retire.”
Voters in Hinds County were going to be able to vote until 8 p.m. on Election NIght after a judge’s ruling that not enough ballots had been printed to meet the 60 percent requirement for printed ballots. Later reports were that an appeal was being filed contesting the extension of time to the state Supreme Court, and votes cast after 7 p.m were to be kept separate as the appeal process would carry forward. Specific Hinds County precincts were later ordered to stay open until 9 p.m. by Circuit Judge Jess Dickerson.
Elections in Madison and Panola counties were being monitored by Department of Justice poll watchers.
