Early voting for the April 24 general election will begin April 10 and go through April 17.

Hours for early voting will be 8:30 a.m. until 6 p.m. and take place in the Registrar of Voters office at Franklin Parish Courthouse. There will be no voting on April 11. 

Voters are asked to bring proper identification. Qualified voters may also request a mail ballot if they are not going to be in attendance during early voting or election day.

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

On the ballet is a five-year 1/2 cent tax renewal for parish wide law enforcement.

Approximately $1.4 million annually is expected to be collected from the sales tax renewal.

Proceeds from the tax renewal will be dedicated to pay operation costs of Franklin Parish Sheriff’s office, including the operation of Franklin Parish Detention Center.
