Early voting begins for November 14th election

Reported By: KPLC Staff

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Voters in Calcasieu Parish got a head start ahead of the November 14th election. Saturday the Registrar of Voters office in Lake Charles along with the Sulphur City Council Chambers opened their doors at 8:30 a.m. to begin early voting.

The ballot includes four parish-wide issues and two smaller tax district issues. Officials say at least 50 voters come in and take advantage of the early voting.

Calcasieu Registrar of Voters Angie Quienalty says, "Perhaps they may be traveling, perhaps they have surgery scheduled, perhaps they just want to vote early. You don't have to have an excuse now where as in the past we had absentee voting, now you come in early just to take care of it."

Polls remained open through 6 p.m. If you would like to vote early, you still have several days to cast your vote.  Early voting resumes again on Monday, November 2nd, and runs through Saturday, November 7th. The polls will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. If you have any questions, contact the Calcasieu Registrar of Voter's Office at 721-4000.
