Light Turnout For Red River Election

Garrett took Red River vote over Marcotte.  However, only about 8% of registered voters took part in the election on Saturday.  There was only one issue on the ballot, the race for 2nd Court of Appeal, and that did not generate much local interest.

The court district includes all of Red River and DeSoto parishes and a portion of Caddo parish.  Red River voters gave Erin Leigh Waddell Garrett 62% of the Vote while Craig Marcotte polled 38%.

However when all of the votes in the district were counted, Marcotte recieved 58% of the vote to Waddell Garrett’s 42%.  Waddell Garrett overwhelmed Marcotte in Red River and DeSoto, however Marcotte’s strong showing in Caddo parish appeared to have won the day.
