The sites will all be located at Shreve Memorial Library locations and citizens can call 226-6891 for a location near them in the upcoming weeks.
“This annual drive will encourage citizens to register to vote or update their address or change their party affiliation if they are registered in Caddo,” said Roberson.
Roberson added, “Using Shreve Memorial Library locations will allow us to be accessible to all neighborhoods in the parish,” adding that party primaries next year will mean some voters may wish to consider their party affiliation.
“It was confusing to a lot of voters last year and the federal elections in 2010 will include party primaries. I encourage voters to call the Registrar’s office at 226-6891 or use the Secretary of State’s website to check their address and party info.
We can mail the change form to the voter or they can come by our mobile registration site and pick it up, ” Roberson added. The website address is www.sos.louisiana.gov.
