Early voting under way for Dec. 8

Early voting for runoff elections began Saturday and runs through Dec. 1. Polls will be open from 8:30 am to 6:00 pm.

Several races for Webster Parish are still on the table. In Minden, district C candidates Vincen “Cheese” Bradford and Deborah Cooksey. Keith Beard and Gabrielle Ramsey Tyler are up for District D. District E’s Pam Bloxom and Kyle Robertson are candidates for City Council.

In Springhill, Ronnie Hearnsberger and Dennis Smith are up for District 2 Alderman. District 3 Alderman candidates are Ross Fleming and Stacey Willard.

Residents of Shongaloo will vote on a 10.98 millage for 10 years to support Fire Protection for the purpose of acquiring, constructing, maintaining and operating fire protection facilities and equipment.

“The holidays are here, so many voters will need to take advantage of early voting due to additional commitments,” said Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin. “Voters don’t need an excuse to take advantage of early voting, and I hope they will remember the importance of their vote.”

There are 134 candidate runoffs in 47 parishes across the state. Of the remaining 17 parishes, eight only have secretary of state on the ballot and nine have secretary of state and a proposition on the ballot.

Voters can utilize Louisiana’s smartphone app, GeauxVote Mobile, to find out where to early vote as well as what’s on their ballot.
