18-year-old wins seat for District 1 Election Commissioner

History has been made as Tyler Wood, 18, will be sworn in as the newest election commissioner for Forrest County in January.

Wood said he became interested in running for office after working closely to the position race during the primary season.

“I’ve worked with my opponent before and I’ve seen how he works the election and I just believe I could do a better job, I’m thankful the voters chose me,” said Wood.
