As of this posting, ALL precincts in Terrebonne Parish will remain at their current location and no emergency move of any precinct will occur.
Also, please remember that some precincts HAVE moved because of precinct changes made earlier this year, as stated in one of my earlier posts. Please go to our website at terrebonneclerk.org for these changes.
My sincere thanks to all for their help, especially to Earl Eues, OEP Director, Entergy personnel, Nancy Boudreaux, Clerk of Court Elections Supervisor, and Clerk of Court Chief Deputy, Jodie Burton.
Here are a few things you need to know when you go to the polls on Election Day:
• You are asked to observe the six-foot social distancing, which will be marked accordingly between voters. Please be considerate of those, who for health reasons, need you to maintain the six -foot distance.
• Out of consideration for others, you are asked to wear a mask, but you will be allowed to enter and vote without one.
• All pens will be sanitized between voters, but it is advisable for you to bring your own ink pen to sign the precinct register.
• You must present a form of picture identification to vote.
• When showing the commissioner your identification, please hold it out closely so that it need not be touched by the Commissioner. There will be Plexiglas for you to stand behind when you show the precinct register commissioner your identification.
• Our Commissioners will wipe down and sanitize the screens and curtains after each voter.
• All our Commissioners have been trained on how to use their personal protective equipment and every commissioner should be wearing a face mask or shield. Some will be wearing gloves.
• There will be hand sanitizing stations located at every precinct.
• The polls will open promptly at 6:00 a.m. and close at 8:00 p.m. You will be allowed to vote if you are in line by 8:00 p.m.
• By law, no headgear, clothing, masks, buttons, or any other type of candidate or political party logos can be worn inside the precinct. You will be stopped at the door if you violate this law.
• No vehicle bearing a sign, flag or other insignia depicting a candidate or political party can park within 600 feet of a precinct.
• And finally, remember that there is a limit of 3 minutes in the voting booth. You can obtain a sample ballot (see below) and be prepared before you vote as this 3-minute limit will be enforced by the Commissioners.
If you do not know your precinct in which to vote, please go to geauxvote.com or call the Registrar of Voters office.
If we all work together, we can make this voting process work smoothly. I have requested my entire staff to participate in helping on Election Day by fielding calls, checking in on Commissioners, replenishing supplies at the precincts, and assisting with election night results tabulation. Our goal is to ensure a satisfying voter experience and reliable, timely results on election night.
Our Commissioners are all well-trained, but glitches happen. If you should encounter a problem at your precinct, please call the Clerk of Court’s office at 985-868-5660 and either a member of my staff or I will address the issue immediately.
