30,000 EBR voters have new voting location, registrar urging voters to verify polling place

News

Approximately 30,000 voters in 24 voting precincts will be voting at new polling places ahead of the primary election.

Registrar of Voters Steve Raborn us encouraging voters to double-check their polling location.

Earlier this year, the Metro Council adopted changes to a number of voting precincts as required by state law, dividing voting precincts that had grown to more than 2,200 registered voters.

This action is one of a series necessary to have voting precinct boundaries ready for redistricting following the 2020 census.

Some changes in polling places were also enacted for voter convenience and because some former polling places are being renovated or were permanently closed.

Affected voters were mailed new voter information cards earlier this year showing their new polling place, and the Clerk of Court will be posting signs and personnel at polling places no longer used to redirect voters to the correct polling place.

Voters can verify their polling place and view a sample ballot by searching their name on the geaux vote app on their smartphone or by searching their name on the secretary of state’s website at www.GeauxVote.com.

Voters may also call the Registrar of Voters office at 389-3940 to verify their polling place.
