Morehouse Parish Registrar of Voters Sandra Thomas said this upcoming election will also be the first under ACT 577, which changes the hours of operation for the registrar's office as well as polling hours.
RS:18-134 E.1 changes the registrar's office hours to 7 a.m. until 9 p.m. on local elections. The hours of 6 a.m. until 9 p.m. stay the same for any regularly scheduled congressional primary elections.
Also in primary and general elections, the polls will be open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. (RS 18:541A)
Thomas said that if there is a run-off for the position of mayor or alderman, this too will be on the ballot May 4.
