County voters execute change
  Voter turnout for the Consolidated Election on Tuesday was only at 20.26 (1,903 voters) across the 25-precincts in Lawrence County. However, a general consensus among voters in Lawrence County reflected a yearning for change. As the election offered a few options on Tuesday, decisive choices were made.
