Board of Supervisors receive update from Circuit Clerk Nance Fitzpatrick Stokes
During Wednesday’s meeting of the Pearl River County Board of Supervisors,
Circuit Clerk Nance Fitzpatrick Stokes announced some important information about the upcoming elections and absentee voting.
In regards to the new voter cards mailed to citizens, Stokes told the board that they had been receiving calls from citizens who were not happy with the change in their voting precinct location. Ironically, Stokes shared that some people are calling her office asking for information and openly admitting they had not read the letter that was included with the new card.
