As an American citizen, elections give you the opportunity to vote and make your voice heard. Your vote is important because it gives you the chance to have a say in how our government should operate, as well as vital issues involving schools, laws, and how your tax dollars are spent. If you fail to exercise your right to vote, you are letting other voters make these decisions for you.
The Clerk of Court plays an important role in the voting process. As the parish’s chief election official and custodian of voting machines, the Clerk is responsible for the delivery of all voting machines to each precinct. The Clerk is also required by law to open each voting machine after the election, tabulate and record all votes, and then report the totals.
NOTE: Due to the Flood in August, 2016, there are several precincts that have changed locations. For a list of the temporary polling location changes go back to our main web page, click on “About” then “News” then “Notice of change of polling place”.
