The Red River Parish Registrar of Voters can assure people living out of the parish will have an opportunity to vote. Registrar Mary Jones tells The Journal they are participating in the Federal Voting Assistance Program. She said, “we can help them or they can go online and register there.”
The program is for all citizens living overseas. This includes members of the armed services and their eligible family members. Jones adds, “In some cases Red River residents living in other parts of the US are eligible.”
Contact the Federal Voting Assistance Program (FVAP) at 1-800-438-VOTE (8683) or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Locally Jones can be contracted at the courthouse, 318-932-5027.
Registrar Jones said that Red River Parish would not have elections this spring, during the March-April election cycle. However there will be elections in October and November. Therefore, anyone in need of this opportunity to get a ballot has plenty of time to assure they will get it.
