NATCHEZ – Adams County voters will go to the polls on Tuesday in the general election to elect a US congressman, an appeals judge and two judges at the Sixth Circuit Court.
County Clerk Eva Givens’ office will be open Saturday from 8am to noon to accommodate those wishing to cast their absent ballots.
In a vote
Longtime Judge at Sixth Circuit Court No. 1 Lillie Blackmon Sanders decided not to run for another term. Residents will vote for three who are vying for her place, including Lydia Robert Blackmon, Sanders’ sister, Natchez’s attorney Carmen Brooks Drake, and Natchez’s attorney Scott J. Pintard. Post 1 Judges represent voters in northern Adams County.
Sixth Circuit Court judge Debra W. Blackwell is running for another term. He represents the people of the southern part of Adams County.
Blackwell is challenged by Natchez Timothy attorney David Blalock and current District Court Judge Adams Eileen M. Maher, who is also an attorney.
The Sixth Circuit District Court Judge Post 1 represents half of Adams County, half of Amite County and all of Wilkinson County.
The Sixth Circuit Circuit Court Judge Post 2 represents half of Adams County, half of Amite County and all of Franklin County.
Chancellery Judge George Ward and District Court Judge Adams Walt Brown are on the vote but are faced with no opponent.
Brian Flowers, Republican, challenges longtime US national Benny Thompson, a Democrat. Redistribution due to population changes listed in the 2020 census led to Adams County joining Thompson’s second congressional district.
In addition, Adams County voters will elect Bruce W. Burton or Virginia Carlton in a non-aligned race to the Court of Appeals.
According to the US census of July 1, 2021, the county is estimated to have a population of 28,742. Of these, 19,258, or around 67 percent, are registered to vote.
