Election this Saturday

Election this Saturday

Voters will go to the polls this Saturday to decide who will serve them in a variety of offices for the next four years. Clerk of Court Steve Andrews notes that polls open at 7 a.m. and will close at 8 p.m., and an ID is required when voting.

Registrar of Voters Angie Sandifer reports that early voting accounted for a record early vote of 2,031. Also, as of Monday morning, 164 of the 297 ballots mailed out had been returned. If 70% of the total 8,652 voters cast ballots for the Oct. 12 election, this would be a total turnout of just over 6,000 voters – which means more than one-third of voters have already cast their ballots.

When qualifying ended in early August, a total of 74 candidates had thrown their hats into the ring for 27 offices in which LaSalle Parish voters will be helping to decide at the fall elections.
