Ballot certification is underway in Bootheel municipal elections as the deadline to sign-up for races was Jan. 21. In the city of Caruthersville, MO the Mayor’s race now has three contenders as Marshall Grubbs added his name to the list. Rick Brandon and Rick Davis have also filed for the seat that has been left empty since early spring last year when long time Mayor Diane Sayre passed away.

In other city races, the seats for City Marshall, City Collector, and City Treasurer are unopposed and all three incumbents have signed up.

For Councilperson, Barbara Rodgers, the incumbent in Ward 1 has signed up and is unopposed. In Ward 2 B.T. Merideth, Jr. has filed and will run against incumbent Barbara Pullam. In Ward 3, incumbent Baughn Merideth did not file for re-election and J.J. Bullington has filed for that seat and is unopposed. Ward 4 has a contested race between incumbent Sheila Simpson and Nick Cartee.

According to Pemiscot County Clerk Pam Treece, write-in candidates can still file but must be registered at the County Clerk’s office for the write-in vote to count. They must sign up with intent to run as a write in by two Fridays before the election scheduled for April 8. Treece also reminds voters that the last day to register to vote is March 12 and absentee voting starts Feb. 25 at the County Clerk’s office. Treece says that if you have moved, you need to make sure that your address is current to vote in the municipality you live in.
