Early voting ends Saturday

Saturday is the last day to vote early in the July 11 election.

The Ascension Parish Clerk of Court, in conjunction with the Parish Department of Recreation, have announced that to accommodate early voting for the presidential primary election, the splash pad and playground at the Oak Grove Community Center will be closed on weekends through July 4.

Clerk of Court Bridget Hanna said early voting for the July 11 Presidential Preference Primary will be held at the Oak Grove Community Center in Prairieville and at the Registrar of Voters offices in Donaldsonville and Gonzales. Hours are 8:30 a.m. to 6 pm. This is a closed party primary election, which means that only Democrats and Republicans can vote. If you are registered as any other party or no party you are not eligible to vote in this election.

Voters may view their specific ballots at geauxvote.com or the Louisiana secretary of state’s Geauxvote app.
