Givens on ballot for Altheimer position, officials say

Chuck Givens will be listed first ahead of Lester Hudson and Travis D. White Sr., respectively, on the Nov. 6 general election ballot for the Ward 2, Position 2 Altheimer City Council race.

The Jefferson County Election Commission omitted Givens’ name by error in a drawing for ballot placements last week.

Monday, commissioners redrew for positions with Givens’ name included.

Also on the ballot will be a recall election on Redfield Mayor Tony Lawhon. The ballot will be marked with a “FOR” and “AGAINST” Lawhon’s removal from office.

The commission concluded that no unopposed candidates within the county will be listed by name.
