NESHOBA COUNTY, Miss. (WTOK) - Election supply bags were assembled and distributed to Neshoba County's 27 voting precincts Monday.

“There's certain things that have to be done. We try to get them done in a timely manner so when the election gets here we can send them out and have an election," says District 3 Election Commissioner Harold Richardson

Richardson says the Commissioners will closely monitor their districts precincts Tuesday. Commissioner Richardson believes voter turnout could be high.

"To begin with I didn't think it was going to be a lot, but I think it's going to be pretty strong," says Richardson.

Richardson encourages voters to participate in Tuesday’s important election.

"Well I’ve always been told if you don't vote then, you're a second class citizen- you know. Everyone has a right to vote. Why don't you utilize it?” says Richardson.

An important note for voters in Neshoba County- Michael Latham's name will still appear on tomorrow’s ballot, despite the candidate's withdrawal from the district 3 school board race. There will be signs reminding voters about this change inside polling places. Votes for Latham will "not" be counted.
