Early voting runs through Saturday
Early voting for the Saturday, April 9, election, which began last Saturday, March 26, continues through this Saturday, April 2.
“Early voting is a great way to conveniently cast your ballot on your schedule instead of having to fit it in on Election Day,” said Secretary of State Tom Schedler. “Saturdays are always busy for individuals and families, especially with Easter and Spring break. I am urging our state’s voters to think ahead and consider early voting now.”
On the ballot parish-wide in St. Martin are a 1.63-mill tax renewal and a $64.5 million bond issue for a wide rage of infrastructure improvements.
In Henderson, voters are being asked to rededicate revenue from an existing and perpetual 1-cent sales tax to the sewer system, drainage and recreation as well as roads.
And in Stephensville-Belle River, in lower St. Martin Parish, on the ballot is a $1 million bond issue for improvements to the area’s parks.
Early voting locations are the registrar’s office in the New Courthouse Annex Building, 415 Saint Martin St., in St. Martinville, and the Sydnie Mae Durand Senior Citizen Center (Council on Aging building) at 391 Cannery Rd., Breaux Bridge. Voting hours are 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Statewide, only 40 parishes are holding elections April 9.
