NATCHEZ — City of Natchez voters are asked to go to the polls today in the municipal general election. However, only one alderman — Ben Davis of Ward 5 — has an opponent. Tarsha Ambeau, an independent, is on the ballot running against Davis today.

Davis withstood a challenge from Jamar White in the primary election in April.

Ward 6 Alderman Curtis Moroney is on the general election ballot as an independent, though he faces no opponent.
