Early voting for the 2021 election kicked off Saturday, April 10 at the parish courthouse. Voters will decide a runoff for BESE Board District 4. Residents of sales tax district 1 will decide on a New Sales Tax of a 1% sales tax.
In what has become a bit of an electoral tradition, Mr. and Mrs. Major and LaFern Ward were the first voters of the election cycle.
Early voting will continue from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. every day but Sunday at the Natchitoches Parish Courthouse. The early voting started today and will continue until April 17. Election Day is April 24. The Natchitoches Parish Journal urges every citizen to exercise their right to vote. Early voting is an excellent opportunity to ensure that your voice will be heard!
The Natchitoches Parish Journal wishes to commend Mr. & Mrs. Ward for their continuing dedication to a better America by their active participation in our democratic freedoms. In the years we have been covering the first day of early voting, the Wards have been the first in line each time. This election was no exception! We would also like to thank Mr. Ward once again for his service to our nation in the Vietnam War.
