On June 6, McLain, Mississippi held a partisan election for Mayor. Three candidates were on the ballot, all as independents. Small towns in Mississippi technically have partisan elections, but to avoid the cost and work of a primary, it is common for all candidates to run as independents.
Steve McCluskey, a member of the Libertarian Party, was elected with 66 votes. He defeated incumbent Mayor Clyde Sylvester, who had 31 votes; and also he defeated Tom Roberts, who had 28 votes.
McLain has a population of 441, and is in Greene County, in the most southerly part of Mississippi, on the Alabama border. Thanks to Cody Quirk for this news.
