This is the first significant election where early voting is occurring in Eunice and the results are encouraging, according to Cheryl Milburn, St. Landry Parish registrar of voters.
“I know since I’ve been registrar we never had that many people in one day,” she said.
There were 777 early votes cast on Tuesday, the first day of early voting for the Nov. 6 election. There were 100 votes cast at the poll in the Eunice Municipal Complex on Tuesday.
“I got two phone calls from residents who thanked me for getting that office set up in Eunice,” she said.
