Billie Meyer, Acadia Parish registrar of voters, issued a series of press releases on Monday regarding the upcoming Nov. 8 election, highlighted by the presidential race which many are calling the most important in U.S. history.
Early voting begins on Tuesday, Oct. 25 and continue through Saturday, Oct. 29. They will be closed on Sunday, Oct. 30. And will reopen for Oct. 31 and Nov. 1.
Early voting hours will be from 8:30 a.m. until 6 p.m. at the Acadia Parish Registrar of Voters Office, located at 568 NW Court Circle.
Those who aren’t yet registered to vote in the Open Primary/Presidential/Congressional election have until Oct. 11 to do so.
Those seeking to register should bringing one of the following documents:
• Current Louisiana driver’s license
• Current Louisiana identification card
• Birth certificate and/or baptismal certificate
Voter turnout for the election, which is also being called the most contemptuous election in U.S. history, is expected to be high.
Meyer was in New Orleans for a conference on Monday, however, one of her employees stated that they “could not see this one not being high.”
“This has been the biggest mudslinging election in the history of U.S. presidential elections and it’s been ugly to watch,” said Rayne resident Berton Malliet, “But I think the bright side is that I haven’t seen so many people wanting to express their opinions so at least more people are getting involved in the process.”
