RIPLEY – The Tippah Electric Power Association’s latest effort to conduct an election of three board members has been marred by another problem.
The voting deadline has been extended, and ballots that originally were supposed to be returned by Dec. 11 must now be returned by Dec. 15.
John Stubbs, president of the Tippah County Citizens Association, had requested a voting deadline extension of one week to Dec. 18.
Stubbs said ballots were scheduled to be mailed out to qualified members of the association on Nov. 30 and received by Dec. 2. However, many association members reported they did not begin receiving ballots in the mail until Dec. 7.
