Early voting ends Saturday in the four area parishes — Jefferson, St. Tammany, St. Charles and St. John the Baptist — that will be holding elections May 3.
In Jefferson, voters will decide on five millage propositions, though only one involves the entire parish and two affect only Grand Isle. In addition, Harahan voters will decide the runoff race for police chief between former Chief Peter Dale and Tim Walker.
The St. Tammany ballot includes a parishwide runoff for coroner between Charles Preston and Leanne Truehart. In Slidell, incumbent Sam Caruso and challenger Pete O’Connell are in a runoff for the District E seat on the City Council. There also are three elections in recreation districts involving millages and a bond issue, plus millage renewal elections in three fire protection districts.
In St. Charles Parish, there is a runoff race between Julia Fisher-Perrier and Jarvis Lewis for an at-large seat on the Parish Council, plus a millage renewal for Hospital Service District No. 1.
St. John the Baptist Parish voters will decide on a bond issue, a millage renewal and a sales tax rededication for public schools.
