LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Monday marked the beginning of Voter Registration Week. The Registrar of Voters is doing all it can to make sure that the people of Calcasieu Parish know how to vote.

During the week, officials are traveling to different schools in an effort to get the younger generation registered.

“Their voice needs to be heard as well and in order for their voice to be heard you have to register and go vote," Registrar of Voters Angie Quienalty said. "Participate in the election process. A lot of our ancestors have paid a lot. They’ve given their life that we have the opportunity to register and vote in our country.”

A registration open house is being held from 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. this week at the Registrar of Voters office, located in the old Parish Courthouse.

Early voting begins Oct. 23 and ends Oct. 30, excluding the Sunday of that week.

Election day is Nov. 6.
