Hattiesburg television station WDAM reports resolution committees in Covington, Jasper, Smith, and Simpson counties are counting write-in ballots to replace 13th District Circuit Judge Robert Evans, who passed away this summer.

Election officials have to report the results to the secretary of state's office by Nov. 12.
