Runoff election is Tuesday

Early voting is underway in a runoff election from the March 1 Primary. A three-way race on the Democratic ballot for justice of the peace for District 4 resulted in no candidate receiving the majority vote.

Incumbant Douglas Wayland received 38 percent of the vote (108 votes), while Heath Davis received 40 percent (115 votes). Rose Ehrhardt was the third candidate in the race receiving 22 percent of the vote.

Davis and Wayland are now on the runoff ballot to determine who will win the seat.

The early voting period began on Tuesday and will continue through Monday during regular office hours at the County Clerk's office in the Lawrence County Courthouse in Walnut Ridge.

Voting will be at the Lawrence County Meeting Room, next to the library, on Tuesday from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Only voters living in JP District 4 are eligible to vote. The district extends from Southern Avenue and Highway 91 through much of the northern part of Walnut Ridge and northeast along Highway 67B North and Highway 67 North toward College City.

Those who voted on the Democratic ballot or did not cast a ballot in the Primary are eligible to vote in the runoff. Voters who cast Republican ballots cannot vote in the runoff election.
