The last day to register to vote for the November election is October 9. While voters still have a few weeks to meet that deadline, today's National Voter Registration Day, was a reminder for people to get out and vote.
In Caddo Parish, the Registrar of Voters has already seen a big increase in people registering to vote, and they don't expect that to change until the October 9 deadline.
As of September 23, there were 166,418 registered voters in Caddo Parish. Of those voters, over 83,000 are Democrats and almost 45,000 are Republicans. Where Ernie Roberson, the Caddo Registrar, is seeing the largest increase is in the number of independent and other party voters. He's seen about 3,000 more voters just in that group.
If you have not registered to vote, links to register are provided below.
