CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) -
With every new term for the Parish Clerk of Court, all current certified election commissioners have to re-certify.
Election Director for the Parish Clerk of Court Paulette Dartez said it's necessary for all certified commissioners to receive his or her re-certification in order to work the polls in November for the Presidential election.
"We need to have at least 580 [commissioners] to do the November election and that's to fill every precinct," Dartez said.
But that doesn't count the number of commissioners they'll need if commissioners are absent, sick or can't work on the day of the election.
Dartez said as of July 1, there are 900 certified commissioners. Since the re-certification process began, only 400 showed up to get re-certified.
"So we'll need the people who are currently certified to come back and re-certify so they'll be eligible to work the November election," she said.
Re-certification classes are being held in the Contraband Room of the Lake Charles Civic Center. Commissioners who are already certified can get re-certified on Thursday, July 19 at the Civic Center at 10 a.m., 2:30 p.m. and 6 p.m.
There will be a new commissioner school on August 21 at 6 p.m. at the Parish Courthouse for those interested in working election day voting centers.
