I am a firm believer in being an informed voter. However, that is sometimes difficult in terms of local elections.
Often, local propositions and candidacies hit the ballot with little or no information about the decision. That is not the case with the November election in Minden. Voters have multiple opportunities to meet candidates, ask questions, and become informed.
One such meeting took place Tuesday night as Webster Parish Democrats had a meet and greet. Another opportunity to get informed will take place Monday night at Saint Rest Baptist church for a political forum (See story on page 1.)
