Early Voting For The 2020 Local Election Ends on a Great Day for America!

L-R: Shon Charles and Linda Martin, Commissioner

Early voting for the 2020 election for mayor of Natchitoches, Clarence and Powhatan, Natchitoches city council seats, police chief of Clarence, alderman for Clarence and Powhatan as well as presidential primaries for both political parties drew to a close Saturday, July 4 at the parish courthouse. The moving of election dates due to the COVID pandemic led to a unique opportunity, the ability to vote on the anniversary of America’s founding.

Ms. Shon Charles was the first person in Natchitoches Parish to cast her vote on July 4th. Ms. Charles was joined by a crowd of her fellow citizens who stretched down the courthouse hallway. It was Democracy in action and a wonderful way to celebrate the 244th anniversary of our nation’s founding.

The Natchitoches Parish Journal wishes to commend Ms. Shon and her fellow voters who made sure their voices will be heard!
