Webster County voters will head to the polls Tuesday, May 22, with only one contested county-wide race and two local races to decide in the Sebree/Poole/Onton/Slaughters area.
Republicans will choose between Marcey Parker and Morgan McKinley in the Webster County Jailer primary race. The winner in that primary will face Democrat incumbent Terry Elder in November.
In the Democratic primary, there are three contenders for magistrate of District 2. Gary Hobgood, Jerry “Poogy” Brown and Keith Eric Hayes are all seeking to win the May election. The winner will challenge Republican Brian Reynolds in November to decide who fills the seat presently held by Brown.
Voters in District 2 (Sebree, Poole, Onton and Slaughters) will also elect a constable. Four individuals –Rob Hensley, Dewayne Drake, Jimmie Donahoo and Michael Cline—will be on the ballot for that position.
Democrats will also cast a vote for United States Representative in Congress in the first Congressional District. Paul Walker and Alonzo Pennington’s names appear on the ballot for that position.
Polls open at 6:00 a.m. Tuesday and clost at 6:00 p.m. To see election results Tuesday night, log on to www.cpcnewspapers.com. The Banner will post the results as soon as they are released by the county clerk.
