In Lauderdale County, Republican and Democrat party leaders are in the process of certifying the election results. Unofficial results were released, but they don't include affidavit votes.

For the tight District 4 supervisors race, there's a chance those votes could make a difference. Not including the affidavit votes Joe Norwood leads Gerald Hudson by 24 votes.

With the new electronic voting machines, the certification process is slower than in past elections.

Circuit Clerk Donna Jill Johnson explained the significance of affidavit votes.

Local party leaders say certified results are due at the Secretary of State's office in Jackson by 5 p.m.Thursday.
