Election Day is here in St. John Parish, beyond

LAPLACE — The Open Primary Congressional Election is today (Nov. 6).

In St. John the Baptist Parish, voters decide on numerous School Board seats, whether or not to renew an existing millage that funds mosquito services in St. John Parish and various others state and federal representative issues.

Election Day voting is from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. at each polling location.

Voters are asked to provide photo identification.

Voters who vote at Precinct 2-3 are reminded that the polling location was moved from the Parish Health Unit back to St. Peter Catholic School at 188 W. 7th St. in Reserve.

For additional voter registration and election information or to check voter status, visit the Louisiana Secretary of State’s website at sos.la.gov.

Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin said voters can find their polling location and sample ballot by downloading the GeauxVote Mobile app for smartphones or by visiting www.GeauxVote.com.

“Statewide turnout is only anticipated to reach between 30 and 35 percent, so I’m strongly urging voters in Louisiana to get out and cast a ballot in this important election,” Ardoin said. “Choosing congressional and statewide representation is critical to our state and something we should all weigh in on by voting.”
