Process begins for November election

123
Commissioners and alternates for the Nov. 6 election were drawn Wednesday, Oct. 10 in the Clerk of Court offices. From left are Board of Election Supervisors secretary Fay Megason, Registrar of Voters Debbie Waskom, Governor’s appointee to the board Louie Bernard, Clerk David Stamey and Republican board representative Paul Fleming. Waskom draws numbered cubes from the bottle for a random draw in each precinct. The number coincides with a name on the printout of qualified commissioners in front of each of the other four. The number is called and Stamey reads the name to ensure all names match. See guides to amendments and proposition Page 4A Photo by Juanice Gray
