Registration dates, Primary dates & upcoming local elections

February 22nd is the last day to register to vote or make changes to your voter record in Caddo parish to be effective for the March 24th Presidential Preference primary.  You can check your current voter information on this website and submit changes through the “Online Voter Registration” button.
The March 24th election is a CLOSED PARTY PRIMARY when it comes to the Presidential Preference primary and parish- state party elections. Democrats can only vote on the candidates of the Democratic party and Republicans can only vote on the candidates of the Republican party. There is no open primary voting for the party elections and no crossover voting from other parties allowed. Voters who are registered as no party, other party or Libertarians, Green or Reform party will not be eligible to vote in the Presidential Preference primary at all. Some no party or so called independent voters are always confused in this type of election and think they can pick a party to cast a ballot. No party voters will not be eligible to vote in the Presidential Preference primary.
The only jurisdiction in Caddo parish with a local election is Greenwood with an alderman at large spot. That town election will be open primary on March 24th but the rest of the election in Greenwood will be a closed primary. Voters will be “locked out” on the electronic machines as necessary based on their party affiliation in Greenwood.
You can change your party, register to vote or change your address or name online at If you wish to make changes in person, you can come by the Caddo Registrar of Voters office at 525 Marshall, Suite # 103 across from the courthouse in downtown Shreveport at the corner of Milam and Marshall between 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Monday- Friday. You can call 226-6891 and forms can be mailed to you but no changes can be accepted over the phone. All applications must be postmarked by February 22nd in the case of mail in applications.
