Early voting begins Saturday
Early voting for the March 24 election will be conducted at the Lafourche Parish Registrar of Voters Offices, 307 W. 4th St., in Thibodaux, and 16241 E. Main St., Suite B-23 in Galliano, beginning Saturday, March 10 and running all week through next Saturday, March 17, with the exception of Sunday, March 11.
Early voting hours are 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Voters parishwide will decide between Interim District Attorney Kristine Russell and Thibodaux City Court prosecutor Brad Naquin on who will replace former District Attorney Cam Morvant, II.
Morvant, citing health concerns, stepped down in November after nearly 15 years.
Voters in the central part of the parish will decide on three candidates for the District 8 seat on the School Board: Chris Lagarde, Raymond Toups and Barry Uzee.
Toups has been serving in the interim since former board member Ronald Pere resigned in May after he and his wife moved to an assisted-living facility outside the Raceland-area district. He had been on the board for 10 years.
In races with three or more candidates, if no one receives more than half the vote March 24, the top two will compete in an April 28 runoff.
There will be no statewide or national races on the ballot.
