Early voting is still underway at the Jefferson County Courthouse. You can vote Saturday, May 21st from 10 am to 4 pm, and on Monday May 23rd, from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm. Local Democratic party officials are planning a cookout near the courthouse to make voting more fun and festive, and increase overall voter participation in the local primary elections.
“Come get FREE food and Get Out The Vote. The Election Day forecast is for scattered thunderstorms so get out and vote early” said Theodis “Ted” Davis, Chairman, Jefferson Democratic Central Committee.
“Every election is determined by the people who show up.” – Larry J. Sabato
Business and banking leaders have banded together to choose our city council members. In addition, the mayor has identified her preference for city council members. We believe our citizens, the residents of each ward, should choose their own representatives. Choose wisely—but vote today.
Local Races To Watch:
Local turnout should be high, with two Pine Bluff natives running for statewide office. Chris Jones has garnered national attention in his bid for Arkansas Governor. In addition, former city councilman Jack Foster is running for United States Senate. Foster has been a long-time Republican, however, he is running in the Democratic Primary. He was also previously convicted for public corruption. Other races to keep an eye on are:
