    Do we know for sure only 2 candidates will be in the race?

    I can't either, but I did in this poll.

    It's my right under "the will of the people" clause, because we don't need voting laws, we just need "the will of the people." The fact that I'm an "Oak Grove people" is just a small detail, right?

    Dave Ware of course! I am hoping and praying that all the lazy azz folks that didn't get out to vote in the last election has learned a lesson...YOUR VOTE CAN make a difference in an election. IF you don't care enuf to vote on the few occassions that we have an election, when the sh** hits the fan, keep your da** mouth SHUT!! (off the soapbox now)

    I imagine Johnny's lawyers are upset as is Johnny and the bunch. I really hope we understand that they aren't changing tactics we have to be prepared to make every soul count on election day. There are people who can't drive, take them, people who don't think there vote counts, show them. Let's get the smell out of City Hall...

    Can people who are as yet unregistered get registered in time?

    Anybody know how this thing will be monitored?

    Hey Maggie, you think my name is still on the role from way back when? I was told of someone that lived in Oak Grove (out of the city limits) went and voted in the last one because her name was still on the roll. I wonder how many others did that. Seriously, I really hope that Hattiesburg gets it's act together and does it right this next time. I think I have already stated that I will use my age to get an out if if I am called to jury duty in Hattiesburg again. The jury intimidation that went on was outrageous and nothing has been done about it. I feel for the folks that did serve on that jury and what sort of intimidation and repercussions they may still be experiencing.

    Probably not since you have voted elsewhere for so long. I don't know how often the city/county purge the voter rolls around here but I don't think they do it often enuf. When I was on the election comm. in P.R. County, our committee had a working copy of the master rolls and once a month we would take the Picayune Items we had saved for the last month and go thru the rolls and mark those that were deceased. We would have family members call us from time to time and tell us of a loved one who had passed or moved and we would keep a list and remove them too. Our method sure made election day a lot less hectic and we never had problems like I have seen in this town.

    I haven't been this fired up about an election since Jess Dickinson defeated DUI Chuck McRae in 2002. And make no mistake about it, the antics of DuPree and his close associates are frankly far worse than 'ol Chuck's. As I've posted in a couple of comments on Facebook today, "We deserve a Mayor who will make us proud, not embarrass us. Vote for Dave Ware!"

    Re: Who will you vote for in the Hattiesburg mayoral SPECIAL ELECTION?

    I was still on the roll in DeSoto County as of a few years ago, and may still be. I only knew I was still on the list because I got a jury summons. Haven't lived up there since 2001, or even a little longer since I was living in Tate Co and in Memphis a lot of the time between 97-01. I'm probably on the roll in Hattiesburg, too. Who do I call or visit to ask for my name to be removed? I've lived in Petal since 06 and I don't want some dishonest person voting under my name.

    I don't have a dog in this hunt, but its good for a laugh. Seems like this is a great example of why voter ID is necessary.

    I'm going to get registered to vote ASAP in Hattiesburg. I'm glad I'm back in the city and I can't wait to vote!
