Fewer voters show up at polls
A significantly smaller number of Lincoln Parish residents turned out for the General Election on Nov. 19 than in the Oct. 22 Primary Election.
Lincoln Parish Registrar of Voters Dianna Stone said this was not surprising.
“I knew there would be a lower turnout than in the Oct. 22 election, because so many of the races were determined during that first election,” Stone said.
For the General Election, 19.14 percent — or 5,047 — of the parish’s 26,372 registered voters cast their votes.
