The Board has set an election date of December 17, 2019 for the special election to elect a new mayor to fill the remainder of Mr. Hamilton’s term.  Any resident of Taylor that wishes to run for the Mayoral position may do so by obtaining Municipality Special Elections qualifying forms from the MS Secretary of State at Mississippi Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann.  There are two forms, a qualifying statement of intent and a candidate petition.  The qualifying deadline is 20 days before the December 17 election (November 27).  Polls for the Dec 17th election day will be open from 7 AM to 7 PM at Taylor City hall.

For a town of about 320 people, Taylor Mississippi has more than its share of interesting history, culture and atmosphere. Taylor has survived good times and devastating times, and it faces the future, always changing, but always keeping an appreciation for hard work, good food and music, sociability, and a slower pace of life.

From modest beginnings as a pioneer settlement to its rise and fall with the railroad and King Cotton, Taylor endures and is now, as Faulkner put it, a “postage stamp of native soil” that attracts visitors and new residents from all over the world who come for its famous food, music and arts scene and bucolic lifestyle.
