Post Caddo Voter Registration & Change Party Deadlines

Caddo Voter Registration & Change Party Deadlines: Wed., Jan. 9th

Qualifying for La. House Dist. #6 Special Election: January 7th–9th

Voters beware! The February 9th Election for Presidential Preference Primary has a confusing element to it, because the La. House District #6 election, will be an “Open Primary Election”, held on the same day. That’s according to Ernie Roberson, Caddo Parish Registrar of Voters. Roberson says, “Voters, regardless of their party affiliation, will be eligible to vote in the Dist #6 Special Election.”

“However, the Presidential Preference Primary, also the same day, the same time, the same polling place, will be a Closed Primary,” says Roberson, “That means, Democrats vote only on a Democratic Presidential Candidate, while Republicans, will vote on a Republican Presidential Candidate only,” he said.

“Voters who are ‘Other Party’, or ‘No Party’, WILL NOT BE ABLE to vote in the Presidential Preference Primary,” said Roberson, “but, they WILL BE ELIGIBLE, to vote on local elections,” he concluded. (If you’re thoroughly confused at this point, please call the Caddo Parish Registrar of Voters for clarification:

Last day to register to vote, change your PARTY or change your address is
WEDNESDAY, JAN. 9th - Caddo Parish Registrar of Voters office, 525 Marshall, Suite 103 (downtown Shreveport across from the courthouse).

Changes to your record can be faxed to the office- Call 226-6891 for details: 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Bossier Parish Registrar's office information: 965-2301.

Qualifying for Louisiana House of Representatives Special Election, Dist # 6,
begins today, Monday, Jan. 7th, and continues through Wednesday, January 9th at the Caddo parish Clerk of Court's office. For information please call 226-6788.

(If you remember, House District #6 Representative Mike Powell recently resigned, making this election necessary.)
