Don’t forget to vote on Tuesday, March 17

The primary election will be held on Tuesday, March 17 and while there are not many contested races locally on the ballot, it still is very important to vote.

In Randolph County there were no contested spots for the primary election, and so far only one for the general election.

For Tuesday’s primary, the only Randolph County candidate running on the Republican ballot is Ronald “Ronnie” White, who is seeking re-election as a county commissioner. On the Democratic ballot is Tim Lowry running for county commissioner, as well as current office holders seeking re-election: Sherry Johnson for circuit clerk, Jeremy Walker for state’s attorney and Carlos Barbour for coroner. 

Polling places will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 17. In Red Bud, those in Wards I and II will vote at the fire department, while those in Wards III and IV will vote at St. Peter’s UCC Church. Baldwin residents will vote at the (former) American Legion Hall; Evansville residents at the village hall; and Prairie du Rocher residents at the village hall.
