Forrest County Sheriff's Department Captain Robert Earl Gray  allegedly violated election law and voted in the June 6th election. Captain Gray lives at 16 Pool Drive and has his property homestead there. Captain Gray used an address of an apparent relative to vote in the special election.  This alleged crime can either be a felony or misdemeanor according to law enforcement sources.

The possible relative who owns the residence where Gray registered to vote is Betsy A Gray. Mrs. Gray lives at 106 Townsend Street, and she has her property homesteaded there. According to voter registration records Captain Gray registered to voted at that address.  Mississippi state law clearly requires electors to vote in the precinct in which they reside. It is not yet clear if Captain Gray voted in previous elections, or if he committed a crime when he registered to voted at that address. Falsely registering at an address where one doesn't reside is also a crime.

Mississippi Code is clear that registered votes MUST be registered on the registration books of the voting precinct of the residence of such person per SEC. 23-15-33. Registrar to register voters.

(1) Every person entitled to be registered as an elector in compliance with the laws of this state and who has signed his name on and properly completed the application for registration to vote shall be registered by the registrar on the registration books of the voting precinct of the residence of such person.

(2) Every person entitled to be registered as an elector in compliance with the laws of this state and who registers to vote pursuant to the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 shall be registered by the registrar on the registration books of the voting precinct of the residence of such person.

(3) Every person entitled to be registered as an elector in compliance with the laws of this state and who has registered to vote in federal elections pursuant to the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 prior to the effective date of House Bill No. 763, 2000 Regular Session, shall be registered by the registrar on the registration books of the voting precinct of the residence of such person.

It is anticipated that Sheriff Billy McGee will remain silent on this matter, as he did with Chief Deputy Charles "Plukey" Bolton's attempt to retaliate against witnesses in the election trial in July who testified that he (Plukey) made promises for a prisoner voting for Dupree. Citizens are encouraged to call the Attorney General's office and the local office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation to demand action.
