With unexpectedly high voter turnout (52%), renewal of the 5-mill property tax for EA Drainage “operation and maintenance” won a resounding victory.  67% of the east bank’s voters approved the renewal which achieved a healthy majority in every one of the 62 east bank voting precincts, boosting a 65% early voting lead at the polls on Tuesday’s Election Day.

Four parish council members, doubling as EA Drainage Commissioners, stressed the tax’s importance on Monday and their constituents agreed.  The slightest margin of victory in any precinct was 62-38%.  70% approval or better was achieved in 19 of the 62 precincts.

In a parish-wide ballot 63% of voters authorized Fantasy Sports Contests in Ascension.

In Ascension, and statewide, all six proposed amendments to Louisiana’s Constitution were approved.
