With today’s voter registration deadline looming, business has been booming at registration offices.

“I always say business is brisk, but this is more than that,” said Angie Quienalty, Calcasieu Parish Registrar of Voters. “This is very brisk, very busy.”

Quienalty reminds residents that today is the set-in-stone, final day to register.

“Any voter business that needs to be done, needs to be done by (Tuesday),” Quienalty said.

That includes change of address or party, she said.

The Nov. 3 presidential election will include nine state constitutional amendments as well as parish referendums.

Voters can register at their local registration offices, online or by mail.

Voter registration offices close at 4:30 p.m. and mail-in registrations must be postmarked no later than Oct. 9, Quienalty said.

“After tomorrow there are no options,” Quienalty said.

While any election always brings a surge in business to voter registration offices, “the presidential election is always our busiest election of all,” Quienalty said. “Every four years, it’s the big one.”

Quienalty said residents wanting to check the status of their registrations may do so by calling the voter registration office, if their registration was submitted before Oct. 5.
