For the second time in two months, Miko Beasley Denson is facing off today against opponent Phyliss J. Anderson for the $466,000-a-year position to head the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians.

Voters in eight tribal communities will return to the polls. Polls will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. today.

In a runoff in July, Anderson defeated the incumbent 1,971 to 1,618 in official returns.
