Caddo Parish begins drive-thru ‘school’ for poll workers in training


SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – Starting Monday, Caddo Parish poll workers in training will be able to pick up their election information at a drive-through location.

Commissioners who work the election have to get certification confirming they attended the class. Like many other things, the election school had to be adjusted due to COVID-19.

Caddo Parish Clerk, Mike Spence, says the class typically has about 200 attendees.

“First of all, commissioners work long days. They’re required to go to classes and schools throughout the year, so we’re trying to make it simpler on them so they’ll stay commissioners. We need them. We don’t have an election without them,” said Spence.

Spence said the drive-thru election school will be used in place of the in-person class for future elections.

The next drive-through location will be held on Tuesday at First Baptist Vivan from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
