Corinth prepares for election year

By NEMS Daily Journal

CORINTH – As one of more than 20 Mississippi municipalities that operate under a special or private charter, Corinth will have city elections this year.
The schedule has been set by city officials for the mayor, alderman and police chief to go before voters.
• April 26: Candidates may begin qualifying.
• July 16: Deadline for candidates to qualify.
• Sept. 14: Political parties hold primaries.
• Sept. 28: Party runoff elections are held, if necessary.
• Oct. 12: General city election.
The Board of Aldermen was expanded in 2006 and a position added when the city began voting on a ward system.
Again this year residents will vote for one alderman to represent the ward in which they live and a second alderman for the at-large seat on the six-member board.
