Sulphur, La. (KPLC) - Voters who live on Mathew Street in Sulphur who believe they were incorrectly turned away from voting today should return to the precinct at Frasch Elementary, said Kim Fontenot, Registrar of Voters.

Voters on Mathew Street may also call the Registrar of Voters Office at 337-721-4000, she said.

Some voters on Mathew Street where placed in District 3 when they should have been placed in District 2, Fontenot said. About 30 voters were affected.

Mike Koonce and Nick Nezat are facing off today in District 2. There is no election today in District 3. The discrepancy follows the recent redistricting, Fontenot said.

KPLC received calls from viewers saying they were turned away from voting.
