Lindsay Krout, a volunteer working in Mississippi, was barred from reviewing voter rolls in Lafayette County Mississippi Friday morning.
Lindsay said when she went to theLafayette County courthouse this morning and was forced to wait for an hour. Then the county clerk told her the Secretary of State’s office said the county had to redact the Social Security number and addresses from the voter rolls. The clerk said it will take until Wednesday to redact the information. And, the county will charge McDaniel supporters for the extra work.
Mississippi law states that the clerk must allow public viewing of the election documentation…
Lindsay said McDaniel supporters in Lowndes County and Lauderdale County faced similar pushback from the local officials. The clerks also said they would have to schedule the time so county officials could be present.
There are reports that Governor Phil Bryant wants to certify the election on Monday.
UPDATE: McDaniel supporters are facing the same pushback in Stone County.
UPDATE: The McDaniel supporters say they are facing a similar situation in Marshall County, Quitman County and Coahoma County
UPDATE: Lindsay writes, “Add Forrest County and Smith County to the list.”
