Monday is last day to register to vote
In little less than a month, voters will go to the polls to cast ballots for Republican and Democrat candidates in some 15 countywide races.
The party primaries will be held Aug. 6.
If you are not yet registered to vote, you have until 5 p.m. Monday to get to the Adams County Circuit Clerk’s office inside the Adams County Courthouse at 115 S. Wall St., Natchez, to register to vote.
If you happen to be reading this before noon Saturday, July 6, the clerk’s office is open until noon today to accommodate late registers.
If not, mark your calendar and plan to get to the clerk’s office before the office closes at 5 p.m. Monday.
Once you’ve registered to vote, study up on the candidates and the issues affecting Adams County and how candidates say they will handle those issues.
Plan to go to the polls and vote your conscience in the party primaries and plan to followup in any necessary runoffs and again in the general election.
After the party primaries on Aug. 6 and an Aug. 27 runoff, if necessary, the some 54 candidates in the 15 county races will be narrowed substantially before the Nov. 5 general election.
Today The Natchez Democrat is featuring another question and answer profile of candidates in a series that has been publishing for several weeks to help inform voters.
We hope you are paying attention to the candidates, the issues and the candidates’ stances on those issues.
Once the ballots are cast we will have to live with the leaders we have selected for the next four years.
Do your civic duty, study up and plan to go to the polls on Aug. 6.
May the best candidates win.
