Lower Than Expected Voter Turnout Across The State

Elections held on Saturday, October 14, 2017 were held quietly, with low voter turnout in Winn Parish, and around the state. The Louisiana Secretary of State’s Office anticipated a 15 percent voter turnout statewide based on historical data and early voting statistics. The fact that only 13.5 percent of voters did turn out in Louisiana “did not surprise us,” said Meg Casper, a spokeswoman for Louisiana Secretary of State Tom Schedler’s office. Asked what contributed to the low voter turnout, Schedler said, “Overall, the treasurer’s race did not garner a lot of attention from voters, coupled with general frustration with government from the national level maybe seeping down to local elections.” Winn Parish voters turned out in even lower numbers with just over 10% of the registered voters showing up at the polls.
