TUPELO – Wayne Chrestman won Tuesday’s election for District 2 Lee County election commissioner candidate, but it’s unclear if he can serve.
Chrestman’s name appeared on the District 2 ballot even though the county’s new district lines, approved two months after Chrestman had qualified for the race, now place him in District 3.
By the time he realized the change, it was too late to remedy the situation.
Chrestman beat incumbent commissioner Bettye Woolard with 57 percent of the votes versus her 43 percent.
