STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) -- Officials still have not finalized the election results in the Alderman Ward two race in Starkville.
Only two votes separate two contenders, (i) Sandra Sistrunk (179 votes) and Lisa Wynne (177 votes).
Starkville City Clerk Taylor Adams tells WTVA.com that there are 17 affidavit ballots in this race; six have been rejected, eight have been challenged by one candidate, and questions still remain with the remaining three.
Leaders have requested a mediator from the Secretary of States Office to review the process.
While none of the affidavits have been opened, during Friday's count, leaders want a state witness present in case the results are challenged.
The affidavits will be opened at 11:00 a.m. Friday.
