Bossier Parish early voting turnout

Don't forget to bring your ID

BOSSIER PARISH, La. - "Out of the eligible voters that turned out between mail voting (as far as the ballots that were returned), as well as the early voting...we're only looking at about a five percent turnout at this point," said Bossier Parish Registrar of Voters Stephanie Agee.

More than 1,900 ballots are cast so far, most of which are mail-in ballots.

It's a low turnout rate of early voters for the March 25th Spring Municipal primary which, traditionally, does see lower voting numbers.

"Just because of the type of election it is," Agee explains. "We are so specific to different areas, so all three races are specific to certain wards and precinct. But, as far as the voters...they should get out and vote and they still have one more day. We have this coming Saturday."

When you're heading to the poll, make sure you have some identification with you and that you know your location and precinct.

If you don't know that or need any other help, remember you can have it all in the palm of your hand by downloading the Geaux Vote app.

"I would like to see the voter turnout be 100 percent," said Agee. "The weather's supposed to be pretty. That always is a factor in voter turnout. Again, I say it was slow for us, but we just want people to get out and vote. Your vote is your voice."

Election Day is Saturday, March 25th. Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 a.m.
