In district and statewide races on the Republican Party tickets will be a runoff between gubernatorial candidates Tate Reeves and Bill Waller Jr. among other races. No Republican candidates for Adams County offices face runoffs.

Don’t forget to go to the polls Tuesday between 7 aa.m. and 7 p.m. Remember, however, that if you voted in the first party primaries on Aug. 6, you can only vote in the party primary that you voted in on Aug. 6.

For example, if you voted in the Democratic Party primary on Aug. 6, you cannot vote in the Republican Party runoff on Tuesday and vice versa. If you did not vote in the Aug. 6 primary, however, you can choose which party runoff you want to vote in on Tuesday.

May the best candidates win.
