Our friends in the League of Women Voters are put out this call to action:Tuesday, August 18th, both the parish and city councils will vote on FINAL ADOPTION OFCO-069-2020 and PO-035-2020. The agreement will establish an early voting site at the Martin Luther King Center off of W. Willow St. in Lafayette. This is a compromise proposal negotiated by City Councilman Lewis to ensure a fully accessible early voting site for Lafayette Parish.

Call and write your councilman! (map of council districts)
