Election day polls open, voters turn up in lines

Posted: Updated:

MONROE, LA. (KNOE 8 News) - Ouachita Parish Election Day polls opened at 6 a.m. and early bird voters had already formed lines dozens of people long out the door.

Voters continue to come and go through the polls to make their voices heard.

For now, the Ouachita Parish Clerk of Court is reporting no problems with any voting machines in the parish.

Election officials are waiting to see how the numbers turn out today after seeing big early voting numbers for many parishes in Louisiana.

A whopping 13,768 people turned out to vote early in Ouachita Parish, with more than 12,000 of those votes coming in-person.

In Lincoln Parish, they also saw a large number of people coming to cast their vote with 4,021 early voters in-person.

In Union Parish, there were 2,600 total early votes cast and now the doors are opening for the final election day this year for our state.

If you are going to vote, local elections offices told KNOE 8 News the item you need to remember more than anything is an ID, one with a photo would work the best and it's easiest for you.

But if you don't know where your polling location is because you don't know what precinct you live in, you can call this number at 1-800-883-2805.
