The general election may have taken place over a month ago, but the fight to keep Mississippi elections open and honest continues.
The state Republican Party announced Tuesday its intent to file a lawsuit against the Leflore County Election Commission, as well as a Greenwood poll manager.
GOP chairman Brad White said he has documented proof that voters received assistance in voting even though they never asked for it.
He said voters were intimidated by individuals standing next to voting booths and telling voters how to vote.
White said his hope is this suit sends a message that violations of state election laws will not be tolerated.
"The Republican Party will continue our ballot security program when we find areas we feel we have adequate evidence to prove election laws are violated, that voters are intimidated, and the process was skewed," said White. "We're going to take it to task."
White said this goes beyond party affiliation and simply to the point of making sure the voting process in Mississippi is fair for all voters.
