Many registered voters throughout Lincoln Parish may vote in a primary election Saturday for offices that include U.S. senator and U.S. House of Representatives. A runoff election for the Senate seat is scheduled to take place in an Oct. 2 election. The general election for the U.S. Senate seat is scheduled for Nov. 2, said Diana Stone, the registrar of voters for Lincoln Parish.

“These procedures can be very confusing,” she said.

Voters who are registered Republicans may choose between two candidates running for the Fifth Congressional District seat that U.S. Rep. Rodney Alexander, a Republican, currently occupies.

Lincoln Parish Republican voters (and those in surrounding parishes) will choose between Alexander, from Quitman, and Monroe resident Todd Slavant, also a Republican.

Regarding Saturday’s party primary for U.S. Senate, former Louisiana Supreme Court Justice Chet Traylor, a Republican, is challenging Republican incumbent David Vitter.
