Election Day less than two weeks away
By BARRY BURLESON
The Marshall County circuit clerk’s office is extending its hours the next two weeks for absentee voting.
The office in the courthouse on the square in Holly Springs will be open this Saturday, Oct. 25, and the following Saturday, Nov. 1, from 8 a.m. to noon for absentee voting.
The Kudzu Festival will be in progress this Saturday downtown, and a fence will surround the north side of the courthouse. However, entrance to the courthouse for absentee voting will be available on the south front.
Absentee voting is also available in the circuit clerk’s office during regular office hours – Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Ballots can also be requested by mail.
On election day, Tuesday, Nov. 4, polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
There will be several national/state races of interest, such as president, vice president, senator, representative and Supreme Court justice. A special election for United States Senate between Roger Wicker and Ronnie Musgrove is one of the most hotly-contested races.
There will also be some local choices on the Tuesday, Nov. 4 ballot. Those will include Marshall County School Board, District 5, and all five county election commissioners.
Candidates for the school board seat are Terry L. Cook and Terry Culver. Incumbent Barbara Pipkin is not seeking re-election.
Candidates for election commissioner in districts 1, 2, 4 and 5 are unopposed. Those are Del Stover, District 1; Marie Devore Palmer, District 2; John L. Taylor, District 4; and Betty Whaley, District 5. Palmer, Taylor and Whaley are all incumbents. Stover will be replacing his wife, Jewel Stover, who chose not to run for re-election.
Candidates for election commissioner, District 3, are incumbent Virginia Armour and challenger Chris Podewils.
