Runoff Nov. 29
Marshall Countians will return to the polls next Tuesday, Nov. 29, to vote in one, two or three races.
The only race on the ballot countywide is for Supreme Court Justice, District 3 (Northern) Position 1. In the runoff are Bobby Chamberlin and John Brady.
“All precincts in the county will have an election because the Supreme Court Justice race will be on the ballot in every precinct,” said circuit clerk Lucy Carpenter.
A couple of local races will also be decided the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.
The two candidates in the runoff for Marshall County superintendent of education are Carrie Skelton and Lela Smith Hale. The county superintendent race will be on most ballots, with the exception of those voters living in the Holly Springs School District.
A Marshall County school board race will also be decided in the runoff. Voters in District 2 of the county will select either Robert J. “Bob” Barry or Harvey L. Garrison.
Absentee voting is now available for the November 29 election. The circuit clerk’s office is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
