In person early voting in Franklin Parish totaled 1,583 as of mid-morning Tuesday, said Geneva Cupp, Franklin Parish Registrar of Voters.

The two-day total comes with six days left of early voting as registered voters have until Oct. 27 for the Nov. 3 open primary, congressional, presidential election.

Hours the Registrar of Voters office will be open is 8 a.m. until 7 p.m. The office is located in the Franklin Parish Courthouse, but there will be no voting  Oct. 25.

“This is a great number of voters,” Cupp said.

To cast their ballots, voters are asked to bring proper identification and may request a mail ballot if they are not going to participate in early voting or election day.

Voters can also get a request form from the Registrar of Voters office or download a request form from www.sos.louisiana.gov.

A number of amendments, national, state, district and local political offices will be listed on the Nov. 3 ballots for Franklin Parish voters.

Locally, Republicans Daniel Fuller, of Delhi, and Errol “Pat” Guyton, of Crowville, will be vying for Justice of the Peace District 1 position.
