Are you an inactive voter? Don’t lose your right to vote!


Times Staff
There are 1,264 voters in Natchitoches Parish on the list of Inactive Voters published today by Louisiana Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin’s office.
That represents about five percent of the parish’s 23,914 registered voters.
The bulk of those individuals, almost 75 percent, are listed as having City of Natchitoches addresses. In some cases, the mailing address may not be within the city limits of that town, but their address is based on the mail delivery address. That’s why there are 14 people on the list who live in Natchitoches Parish but have a Coushatta mailing address. The same is true for 24 Natchitoches Parish voters with a Saline address.

The list, according to the Secretary of State’s office, is of inactive voters because of a number of reasons. During the annual canvass, an individual’s registration address might not be verified by the parish registrar of voters or the address on file has been returned undeliverable.
Natchitoches had 945 names on the list while Campti and Robeline had 73 and 70 respectively. The number of voters on the inactive list from Natchez, Saline, Goldonna, Cloutierville, Marthaville, Coushatta and Provencal ranged from 11 to 31 voters.
Having less than 10 names on the inactive list were Mora, Melrose, Ashland, Chopin, Gorum, Lena, Derry and Bermuda.
