Election Day: DOJ to monitor polls

After all the legal drama, Hattiesburg voters will finally decide their next mayor in today’s special election.

How important is it? Click Boutique owners Adam Myrick and Jason LeViere are shutting down their downtown business today to remind folks to cast their ballots.

“We want people to understand the importance of what this election means for Hattiesburg,” said co-owner Adam Myrick, a Dave Ware supporter. “Essentially, we have to cross this bridge.”

Polls at 14 city-wide precincts are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. as voters choose among candidates Johnny DuPree, Ware and Shawn O’Hara.
