Runoff Election for Choctaw Chief to Take Place Tuesday

Voters with the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians will select a new chief on Tuesday.

Incumbent Chief Phyliss Anderson is facing off against former chief Beasley Denson in a runoff election between the top two vote getters from the primary earlier this month. Anderson beat Denson four years ago to get the job. The polls will be open Tuesday from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. in the evening, at all tribal polling locations.
