Two weeks remain until voters will head to the polls in much anticipated local and state races that will declare winners in offices that include  a new Grenada County sheriff, lieutenant governor and governor of Mississippi.
Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 5. According to the Grenada County Circuit Clerk’s Office 538 absentee ballots have been requested so far. That number is down from the 800-plus absentee request two weeks prior to the primary election in July.
