HATTIESBURG -- Hattiesburg residents head to the polls today for a rematch in the city's mayoral race. 


Democratic Hattiesburg Mayor Johnny DuPree recorded 37 more votes than his challenger, Independent Dave Ware, in a June 4 election. 


The new election was called by Judge William Coleman after a mistrial was declared in a suit brought by Ware, challenging the outcome. 


Polls will open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. today.
