Meridian Democratic mayoral candidate Percy Bland spent much of Monday going through voter absentee and affidavit ballot boxes from the June 2 election.

"On Tuesday night, I told my supporters that I wanted to look at all the results to make sure everything was done in the correct manner," said Bland from his campaign headquarters. "I owe that to them."

Republican Cheri Barry beat Bland by 293 votes.

The Democratic candidate enjoyed a substantial lead much of the election, until the final voting box was counted.

Bland gave no time frame when he would finish reviewing the boxes.

"I just started the process today at (City Clerk) Ed Skipper's office," he said. "I'm trying to get through with everything as expeditiously and as quickly as possible."
