The Harrison County Primary Election is a very important time that comes along only once every two years, and we have a slew of candidates who believe in themselves and believe they can in some way improve life in Harrison County.

Elected positions at the local level may not be the heady stuff of national campaigns, but if you have read the responsibilities of those elected offices, which have been included along with the campaign stories this past month, you may understand the importance of each officeholder.

On Tuesday, May 2, voters will decide which of their party’s candidates will stand for election in the fall. Voters will choose either a Democratic or Republican ballot on which to mark their choices.
Be a savvy voter; candidates are much more than a name.
