Qualifying For April 6th Elections Wraps Up Tomorrow – What’s On The Caddo-Bossier Ballots?
Qualifying for the April 6th elections wraps up at 5 tomorrow evening. What’s on the ballots? Diane Doughty with the Caddo Clerk of Courts Office says voters there will elect a Court of Appeals Judge, District Court Judge for Division F, a mayor and two aldermen in Mooringsport and five aldermen in Oil City. There are also five tax renewal propositions on the ballots in Shreveport.
She says right now, only one person has qualified for Court of Appeals Judge. If someone else enters the race, that could be the one to watch. If not, voters will probably turn out to vote on the tax renewals, which involve Streets and Drainage, city employees and police and fire department budgets.
In Bossier Parish, Clerk of Court Cynthia Johnson says there are Bossier City mayor and city council elections. She says Mayor Lo Walker is running unopposed at the moment, but it’s still possible someone could sneak in at the last minute. If someone does, that would be the hot item. If not, the city council races could be.
Benton and Haughton will also be voting on aldermen. And Plain Dealing is voting on a Justice of the Peace. Some Bossier voters will also be deciding on the Shreveport tax propositions. Johnson says the Shreve Island district spills over into Bossier, so voters in that area will be deciding those, too.
Early voting for this election runs March 23rd through 30th, except for Sunday.
