Voters Head to the Polls this Saturday

DeSoto voters will head to the polls on Saturday, April 24, to decide who will become the next representative for our district with the Board of Education and Secondary Education (BESE) and whether or not to pass a 1-mill property tax allocated for DeSoto Animal Services. DeSoto’s District 2 will cast votes for their Police Juror members.

BESE Board run-off candidates will be Michael Melerine-R and Cassie Williams-D, with the winner taking the place of former representative Tony Davis.

In DeSoto District 2, voters will cast their preference between Kyle D. Kennington-R or Ronald “Ronnie” Allen-R. The victor of the Kennington-Allen runoff will fill the seat vacated by Judge Nicholas Gasper, who resigned his Jury seat after winning the election to serve as Judge for the 42nd Judicial Division.

The main item on the ballot for all parish voters is a proposition regarding a levy 1-mill tax on all property subject to taxation in DeSoto parish, which would fund animal services, including the animal shelter and mosquito control.
