Look online at the Secretary of Stateâ€™s Web site or in Sundayâ€™s edition of the Ruston Daily Leader for a sample ballot that will show you the decisions you will be faced with Tuesday in the voting booth. Read the constitutional amendments and decide whether you want those rules written in stone or want them addressed by statute.
Look at the local fire tax election intended to better fund the parishâ€™s fire protection system. A quarter-cent, in these times, must be considered carefully.
