It has skipped no one’s attention that 2016 is an election year.  With early voting starting on August 1 for the primary election and on October 11 for the general election, the time to decide whom to cast your ballot for in the upcoming election of local and national leaders is drawing to a rapid close.

To allow citizens of Madison County to get to know their local candidates better, a voter education event was held at Four Freedoms Park on Saturday, June 25 at 2 p.m.

The event gave voters the opportunity to meet the Madison County election candidates or representatives. Information regarding the Madison County Supervisor of Elections office and the upcoming 2016 election was also provided. The day was proven to be very informative and hopefully enlightening to the citizens of Madison County.

The Madison County branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People sponsored the event.
