With early voting beginning tomorrow, East Baton Rouge Parish Registrar of Voters Steve Raborn is reminding those who regularly vote early at the Coursey Boulevard branch office that early voting has been temporary relocated to Forest Community Park on South Harrell’s Ferry Road to better provide for social distancing and heavy voter turnout during the pandemic.
The Coursey Boulevard office will remain open during the early voting period for other voter registration business and hand-delivery of absentee ballots, but in-person early voting will not be available at that location.
Registered voters of East Baton Rouge Parish may vote early in-person at any of the five following locations in the upcoming election:
- City Hall: 222 St. Louis Street, Room 607, Baton Rouge
- State Archives Building: 3851 Essen Lane, Baton Rouge
- Forest Community Park: 13900 S. Harrell’s Ferry Road, Baton Rouge
- Baker Motor Vehicle Building: 2250 Main Street, Baker
- Central Branch Library: 11260 Joor Road, Central
Early voting will be held 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. October 16th through October 27th, closed on Sundays.
Heavy turnout is expected at all early voting sites, and voters should be prepared to wait in line. Voters should also be prepared for a long ballot, including numerous races, 7 proposed constitutional amendments, and other propositions in certain areas of the parish. To expedite the voting process, voters are strongly encouraged to review or print their sample ballot from the Secretary of State’s website at www.GeauxVote.com or the GeauxVote smartphone app, and they may bring a marked sample ballot with them into the voting booth. Masks are not required for voting, but voters are encouraged to wear a mask and to observe social distancing while in line and while in the polling place.
