  1. There is a widely held misconception or belief that only Kaplan Residents vote for Kaplan City Judge. This is not correct. All registered voters of Ward 9 vote for this position. Kaplan City Judge is actually a misnomer. This Judgeship is actually a Ward position. So, if you reside and are registered in Ward 9, get out and vote on Saturday October 5th this year. For your information, my ballot number is # 62.
  2. The western boundary of Ward 9 coincides in part with La. Hwy. 3093 ("Little Chapel Road"). Ward 9's eastern boundary is somewhat irregular but extends all the way to the Abbeville Country Club and coincides with the nearby coulee and various other landforms located along the western city limits of Abbeville. Its northern boundary coincides in the northwest part with Bluebonnet Road, in the northcentral part to Dennis Road and in the northeast part with Revis Road. Finally, Ward 9's southern boundary begins at La. Hwy. 3093 and Juniper Road and runs about 3 miles East along Juniper, until Juniper turns North. The southern boundary continues, however, in an easterly direction for about 3 miles, when it then coincides with Junius Road, until it then reaches Ward 9's eastern boundary.
