The fall election cycle is October and November. The first election is the October 14th primary election. Local Registrar of Voters Mary Jones said there are several things on our local ballot.
Jones said the statewide issues include electing a new State Treasurer. You will recall that Treasurer John Kennedy successfully ran for and won a U.S. Senate seat. We’ll vote on a successor next month.
Also Jones said, “There are three proposed constitutional amendments on the ballot. The local issues include four tax propositions put up by the Red River Parish Police Jury and the Red River Parish School Board.”
The dates for voting early in the October primary are Saturday September 30th through Saturday October 7th. Early voting will take place in the Registrar of Voters office on the first floor of the courthouse. Be sure to bring your ID.
If you don’t vote early, election day will be October 14th.
