Mississippi: Election commissioners in Oktibbeha County are hoping county supervisors will approve a $28,000 request to purchase about 30 e-poll books. The county currently uses large paper voter rolls and that creates problems with split precincts. “Almost every (precinct) has at least one split, with congressional, justice court (and other positions). Our county has more splits than any other county in the state. Some elections, we have had as many as 14 splits at the larger precincts," Greg Fulgham, District 1 election commissioner told The Dispatch.
