Early voting will remain relocated until end of the day

CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) - Update: The electricity has been restored at the Calcasieu Parish Old Courthouse Building.

Early voting will remain at the temporary location at the Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness until 6:00 p.m., and will resume tomorrow in its regular place.

Due to the power outage at the Calcasieu Parish Old Courthouse Building the early voting location has been temporarily relocated.

The Registrar of Voters has temporarily relocated their offices to the Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, located on the 2nd floor of the 901 Lakeshore Building in Lake Charles to accommodate residents that wish to participate in early voting.

Other voting stations have not been affected by the power outage, and will be opened today. Entergy is currently working on getting the power fixed, but no word on how long it will take.

Signs are currently being placed around the Government Building Complex to point voters in the right direction.

More information on this can be found on the Parish's website.
