Alcorn County district map to be corrected

CORINTH – The Alcorn County redistricting map recently approved by the Board of Supervisors will be revised after it was learned that an incorrect map was given to the consultant as a starting point.

Third District Supervisor Tim Mitchell said this week that the map provided to the Northeast Mississippi Planning and Development District was a version before the most recently adopted county map.

The circuit clerk’s office has not sent out new district assignments and voting precincts to county residents affected by redistricting yet, so those households will receive only one notice once the corrected map is finalized.
