Runoff election Tuesday
By BARRY BURLESON
Marshall County voters return to the polls next Tuesday for a few decisions.
Local Democratic Primary runoffs, on August 23, include:
• Superintendent of education – Felicia Anderson Harvell and Jerry Moore.
• District 1 supervisor – Conery DeBerry and Charles Terry.
• Constable North – Leon Cothern and Johnny Fitch.
• Constable South – Jesse Johnson and Antjuan Lester.
• Justice court judge North – Eugene D. Brown Jr. and Mae Garrison.
• State representative District 13 – Billy B. Gray and Don Randolph.
The Democratic Primary Runoff ballot will also include a statewide race for governor between Johnny L. Dupree and Bill Luckett.
The lone race on the Republican Runoff ballot August 23 will be for state treasurer between Lynn Fitch, a native of Marshall County, and Lee Yancey.
There can be no crossover voting – meaning a person voting a political party’s ballot August 2 must vote that same party’s ballot for the August 23 runoff.
On the other hand, if one did not vote at all in the first primary, he or she can vote either party in the runoff.
Absentee voting is available in the Marshall County circuit clerk’s office during regular hours, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The office will also be open from 8 a.m. to 12 noon Saturday, Aug. 20 (which will be last day to vote absentee in person). Absentee ballots requested by mail must be back in the circuit clerk’s office by 5 p.m. Monday, Aug. 22.
