Meridian is one of several cities in Mississippi where Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann says there have been an unusually high number of absentee ballots cast for municipal primaries.
State officials say they'll be reviewing all of the absentee ballots in Meridian, Macon, and Canton, among other cities, after the primary elections are complete.
Hosemann says that, normally, about five percent of total votes cast are absentee. But in some cities and towns, that number is already as high as twenty percent.
