Special election set for Noxubee superintendent

JACKSON -- Noxubee County voters will choose a superintendent of schools in an April 3 special election. 


A news release from Gov. Phil Bryant's office Thursday says a circuit court determined in January that a special election is needed because some absentee ballots were not properly processed in the August 2011 Democratic primary for Noxubee superintendent. 


No other party fielded a candidate for superintendent in the November 2011 general election. 


The school district's website says Roger W. Lidell is superintendent.
