Mississippi Choctaws set another vote for council
The Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians will hold another election to decide two seats on the tribal council.

The tribe's election committee called for a new vote due to election law violations. In one case, a minor entered a polling place with a t-shirt bearing a candidate's name. In the second case, an election official opened a ballot box before the election was officially declared over.

The new election takes place August 25. It will decide representation for the Crystal Ridge and Tucker communities on the reservation.
