Miss. counties sharing $1M to pay election costs


The Associated Press



JACKSON -- Mississippi's 82 counties are sharing $1 million in state money to help pay for election expenses. 


Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann said in a news release Tuesday that the money in the state Election Support Fund comes from filing fees paid to his office by out-of-state limited liability companies. 


The state money, in part, replaces federal money that had been coming the past several years from the Help America Vote Act. 


The $1 million was recently sent to counties. It was divided according to the population, with larger counties receiving more. 


Hosemann says the state money can be used to acquire, upgrade, maintain or repair voting equipment; to buy election supplies; to hire technical support; or to train election officials.
