Ballots can be cast daily from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Clerk of Court Office located in the Jackson Parish Courthouse in Jonesboro.

Hand sanitizer will be provided to voters and the mask mandate is in effect. Proof of identity through a Louisiana driver’s license, a Louisiana Special ID, generally recognized ID with picture and signature or a digital license via LA Wallet, is required. The deadline to request an absentee by mail ballot is March 16 by 4:30 pm which must be received by the Registrar of Voters by 4:30pm on March 19th. The regular election day is Saturday, March 20th.
