Your Local Election HQ

Early voters stand in line outside Caddo Parish Registrar of voters’ office on the first morning of early voting for the Oct. 12, 2019 election.

SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – If turnout in Texas and elsewhere in the U.S. are any indication, lines could be long in Louisiana when early voting opens in Louisiana on Friday. Voters in some Northwest Louisiana parishes will have more than one option for where they cast their ballots ahead of Election Day on November 3.

Bossier and De Soto Parish have added polling locations. Others have moved to locations that allow for compliance with social distancing guidelines. Caddo, on the other hand, has only one polling location available in a parish of more than 230,000.

Below is a list of early voting locations in each Northwest Louisiana Parish and information on what voters need to know.

The early voting period in Louisiana was extended by three days for a total of ten for the November 3 election, thanks to a ruling in a federal lawsuit in September over the state’s coronavirus pandemic voting plan. As a result of that ruling, polls will be open for early voting from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. beginning October 17 through Tuesday, October 27 (excluding Sunday, October 17 and Sunday, October 25).

All voters in line at 7 p.m. have the right to vote.

When you go to cast your vote early, you will be asked to identify yourself with either a photo ID or signature on a voter affidavit. You may use a Louisiana driver’s license, a Louisiana special identification card, a United States military identification card that contains the applicant’s name and picture or other generally recognized picture identification card that has your name and signature.

According to the Louisiana Secretary of State’s Office, a visibly disabled voter and the person assisting him or her in voting shall go to the front of the line when voting early at the Registrar of Voters Office or at designated locations for early voting.

See La. R.S. 18:1303 for more information about voting early.
