Polls Position

Details for Election Day



Saturday (3.05), all the hype of the presidential primaries finally yields to an opportunity for actual action. Whether you want to make America great again, think it's great now, wish to fight income inequality, or just feel that the Kasich Action Plan is underappreciated, your chance to hit the polls is today! All the details follow.

 

The ballot contains the primary candidates for the Republican and Democratic nominations as well as local party offices. Far less hyped than the race for POTUS are the Orleasn Parish Democratic and Republican Committee races. These reps help vet municipal candidates and set platforns.

 

Then, there are the delegates who head to the national party conventions and select the respective nominees. On the GOP side, 47 delegates are in play. On the Democrats’ end, 58 delegates are at stake. The Louisiana Secretary of State reported that over 25,000 people have all ready cast their ballot.

 

The primary options include the names that you know including many candidates who dropped out of the race, but still appeat on the ballot. PLus, there are some candidates you probably have never heard of. On the GOP side, they include Peter Messina and Tim Cook. Lesser known donkeys include Steve Burke, Roque "Rocky" De La Fuente, Henry Hewes, Keith Judd, John Wolfe, Michael A. Steinberg, and Willie L. Wilson.

 

Voting runs from 7:00a.m. until 8:00p.m. daily. Sites are as follows:

 

Unlike early voting, election day voting is held at dozens of locaitons city-wide and voters must pull the levers at their assigned poling place. If you do not know where that is, plug in your info here and the wonders of the web will send you in the right direction.

 

Voters must come with their Louisiana Driver’s License, Special ID or other official ID picture when they come to vote early. Those without picture ID may have to provide proof of residency in the form of a bill, and possibly fill out an affidavit. Voting sites are closed on Sundays.
