The 42 for Better Schools campaign has asked the Secretary of State’s office to review ballots across all 82 counties in Mississippi after finding errors on the ballots in Hinds county. A Mississippi voter in Hinds County found the errors when they went to complete their absentee ballot according to 42 for Better Schools spokeswoman Patsy Brumfield.
The same errors found on the absentee ballot are also visible on the Hinds County sample ballot. The letter “A” is removed from the Initiative 42-A voting choice, so voters can vote “FOR Initiative Measure No. 42” or “FOR Alternative Measure No. 42”. Without the letter “A” to designate the alternative, voters might vote for the wrong initiative Brumfield said.
