Secretary of State Tom Schedler has announced that early voting will not take place Friday, April 22, in observance of the state holiday for Good Friday.

Early voting will resume on Saturday, April 23, from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. registrars of voters’ offices in parishes that will have April 30 elections. Saturday, April 23, will be the final day of early voting for those elections.

In Cenla, April 30 elections are scheduled in Beauregard, Evangeline, Rapides and Vernon parishes.

There are no candidate elections, only tax referendums.

Only one election will be held in Rapides Parish, a 6.14-mill, 10-year property tax renewal for the Ward 9 Recreation District.

In Beauregard Parish, voters will decide on parishwide Police Jury Proposition No. 1 tax of 1.18 mills for 10 years; a parishwide Police Jury Proposition No. 2 tax renewal of 7.44 mills for 10 years; and a parishwide School Board school district tax continuation of 8.77 mills for 10 years.

In Evangeline Parish, ballots include a parishwide Police Jury tax renewal of 5.21 mills for 15 years; and a town of Mamou 1-cent sales tax renewal for 25 years.

Vernon Parish has 13 elections.

Parishwide property tax renewal elections, all for 10 years, are for the Law Enforcement District, 7.92 mills; Police Jury Proposition No. 1, 7.92 mills; Police Jury Proposition No. 2, 5.94 mills; Police Jury Proposition No. 3, 5.84 mills; and Police Jury Proposition No. 4, 2.26 mills.

Other Vernon elections, all 10-year renewal referendums, include Road District No. 1 Proposition No. 1, 5.27 mills; Road District No. 1 Proposition No. 2, 2.09 mills; Road District No. 3, Proposition No. 1, 11.45 mills; Road District No. 3, Proposition No. 2, 4.59 mills; Road District No. 4, Proposition No. 1, 5.60 mills; and Road District No. 4, Proposition No. 2, 2.25 mills.

In Rosepine, voters are being asked to renew a 1-cent sales tax and approve a half-cent sales tax, both for 40 years. The 1-cent tax would be used for the sewer system while the half-cent tax would go for streets, public utilities, fire protection, water, sewer system, economic development activities, public works projects and operating expenses.
