Early voting for the March 24 presidential preference primary elections and local elections — including mayoral races in Natchitoches, Ferriday and four other Cenla municipalities, will begin Saturday.

Early voting, which takes place in parish registrars of voters’ offices, will continue Monday through Friday next week, March 12-17.

Hours for early voting at the Rapides Parish registrar’s office are 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on those days.

The deadline to accept requests for ballots to vote absentee by mail is 4:30 p.m. March 20, according to a news release from Rapides Registrar Joanell Wilson.

In addition to Natchitoches and Ferriday, the Cenla communities holding mayoral elections on March 24 are Chataignier, Clarence, Powhatan and Florien.

The Democratic presidential primary candidates on Louisiana ballots are “Bob” Ely, Barack Obama, Darcy G. Richardson and John Wolfe.

Listed on ballots for the Republican Party presidential preference primary, even though some of the candidates have dropped out of the race, are Michele Bachmann, Randy Crow, Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman, Ron Paul, Rick Perry, Charles “Buddy” Roemer, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum.

Here are the March 24 elections, for which early voting begins Saturday:
