Early Voting

Ahead of the December 10th election, early voting is now going on.  You have until Saturday to vote early or otherwise cast your ballot on election day.  As of 3:00 pm Thursday a total of 217 persons had voted early.

On the local ballot is a parish-wide Road Tax renewal, a school board runoff and a tax renewal for Fire District #1.  In School Board District 5, Alice Hamiliton Thomas and James “Jim” Veuleman are in a runoff for the seat.

Statewide there are three constitutional amendments on the ballot.  Amendment #1 is getting the most attention.  If passed it would require voters to be citizens.  It is supported by Attorney General Jeff Landry.  He said, “If you think only American citizens should vote in Louisiana’s elections, vote YES on Amendment 1.”

The explanation of the three amendments from the Secretary of State is below.
