Just after lunchtime, voter turnout for the Democratic runoff election appeared to be slow at most precincts in Lafayette County, with a bit more activity seen at the precincts inside the city limits.

Election Commission Jim Stephens said the four locations in Area 4 that he covers had only a handful of voters by noon.
The Stone Center precincts, however, had about 84 voters by 1 p.m.
The Oxford Conference Center election commissioner Max Hipp reported seeing about 20 voters per hour.
Lafayette County residents are voting for one of two Mississippians vying for a U.S. Senate seat.
Mississippi State Rep. David Baria is running against Howard Sherman of Meridian for the Democratic nomination.
The winner will face the Reform Party’s Shawn O’Hara of Hattiesburg and the Libertarian candidate, Danny Bedwell of Columbus.
All 18 precincts in Lafayette County will be open until 7 p.m. tonight.
