In 2012 Louisiana ranked in the middle of the pack with over 60% of registered voters making it to the polls. That was not bad; but then come local elections and the numbers go way down. Of Sulphur's 20,000 registered voters ... less than 4,000 bothered to vote. This in a Mayoral election! It would seem that local elections just don't get us to the polls. We have some ideas that may help. Take our poll and see if you like any of them.
