Last day for early voting

Posted: Updated: Oct 12, 2013 02:30 PM

MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - The polls close Saturday, October 12, at 6 p.m. for early voting in the 5th District.

Today is the last day to vote early, and the Registrar of Voters, Christa Medaries, says she is disappointed in the turnout. The last report showed only 1,603 voters have gone to the polls, out of a total 102,759 registered voters in Ouachita Parish.

Medaries says that in recent elections, more people take advantage of early voting instead of voting the day of the election. If this trend continues, she doesn't have high hopes for voter turn out on election day, October 19.
