According to Don Zimmerman of the Arkansas Municipal League, if the voters remove Henderson, the city council can either call for a special election to fill the office or the council members can vote to appoint someone to the office as interim.

Humphrey residents will have the choice of removing their mayor, Rodney Henderson, on the Tuesday, Nov. 8 general election ballot. According to Arkansas County Clerk Melissa Wood, this is the first time in her 19 years of working for the county that the ballot will ask voters to remove a mayor.

According to Don Zimmerman of the Arkansas Municipal League, if the voters remove Henderson, the city council can either call for a special election to fill the office or the council members can vote to appoint someone to the office as interim.

The ballot will read, “For the removal of Rodney Henderson from the office of mayor in mayor-council form of government in the City of Humphrey; against the removal of Rodney Henderson from the office of mayor in mayor-council form of government in the City of Humphrey.”

By voting for, the individual is wanting Henderson removed from office. If voting against, they want the mayor to finish his term, which is scheduled to end Dec. 31, 2018.

Also on the ballot in Humphrey will be contested Humphrey City Council seats, which include Donald Combs and Michael "Porky" Hodges vying for Ward 1 Position 1 and James D. Carr Jr. and Eddie White for Ward 2 Position 2.
