The Hinds County Sheriff's race is a long way from being officially decided.
All kinds of errors have been found and election commission members are working to come up with official results in the race that has challenger Tyrone Lewis barely beating incumbent Malcolm McMillin.
Connie Cochran is the longtime chairman of the Hinds County Election Commission.
"As of about 3 o'clock this morning I was told there were about 200 votes difference," Cochran said.
Aaron Banks represents the Lewis campaign and has a much higher number of votes separating the two candidates.
"Roughly around 1,887 somewhere up in there," Banks said.
Tyrone Lewis, former interim Jackson Police Chief, is still not sure when a final result will be available.
"I am waiting on my legal team to advise me as so to when, so everything they know, I will know when once they inform me," Lewis said.
"There appears to be some discrepancy in the number of votes cast and the number of votes cast in the primary," McMillian said.
Despite a tedious counting of the absentee and affidavit ballots; where somebody shows up to vote and their name is not on the roll but they are allowed to vote anyway because they sign an affidavit swearing they live in the district, Democratic Executive Committee Chairman Claude McInnis says a final official result is a ways away.
"Nobody should be making any statements," McInnis said. "You should not even go dancing out of here and but your boss some champagne because this stuff is so unofficial that they don't even exist."
"When do you expect you will be able to make them official?"
"We want to try and do this probably by the weekend or the first part of next week," McInnis said. "We got ten days to do it."
The official results could be offiicial by Friday or Monday of next week before there is a final result in the Hinds County Sheriff's race.
