|Mississippi||Election Contest: Dave Ware v, Johnny DuPree||2013-06||Hattiesburg Mayoral||Election Contest||Voter impersonation||Ineligible felon voting||In the June 4, 2013 election for Hattiesburg Mayor, Dave Ware finished 37 votes behind incumbent Johnny DuPree. But that result was marred by a total breakdown in the absentee balloting process and shocking instances of illegal voting. Hundreds of absentee ballots failed to comply with mandatory provisions of Mississippi law. They were counted anyway, giving DuPree well more than his margin of victory. The evidence showed improper influence of absentee voters and lax security and recordkeeping for absentee ballots. One ballot cast by a Ware supporter simply disappeared. A 17-year-old voted absentee from the county jail. A “curbside” voter at the Dixie Pine precinct (someone too disabled to enter the polling place but who voted in person from his vehicle, with help from the poll managers) was actually a healthy 22-year-old man who was in San Antonio, Texas on Election Day. He did not vote, but someone else voted in his name. Disenfranchised felons voted, even though their prior crimes made them ineligible. Sheriff’s personnel carried one of those voters from jail to vote in person on June 4. At least four ineligible felons voted. The trial itself involved allegations of witness intimidation, jury “retaliation,” and a 9-3 verdict for Ware that somehow devolved into a deadlocked 8-4 vote.||New election ordered||http://hottytoddy.com/2013/08/21/big-wins-of-integrity-of-the-vote/|
