Designated On-Street Early Voter Parking
Posted: 11/1/2019 3:00 PM

Early Voting Begins Tomorrow, November 2

On-street reserved parking will be available at no fee for early voters from Nov. 2 through Nov. 9. Designated on-street parking will be clearly marked, specifically for the purposes of early voting in the following areas (see attached map):

  •  W. Convent St. between Buchanan St. and Lafayette St. (across from First Baptist School)
  • Lafayette St. between Convent St. and Barry St. (across from First Baptist School and in front of the Alexandre Mouton House)

These designated parking spots are intended for short-term parking for early voters only and will be clearly marked with signs indicating as such. All other on-street or surface lot parking is subject to normal fees, designations and/or restrictions as marked. These designated parking spots will only be available during early voting Nov. 2 through Nov. 9. In the interest of public safety following a structural reassessment last year, the Buchanan Street Garage was closed until further notice and is therefore not available for early voter parking.​ 


Early voting in Lafayette Parish is held at the office of the Registrar of Voters located at 1010 Lafayette St. in Lafayette. Early voting is from Saturday, Nov. 2 through Saturday, Nov. 9 – with the exception of Sunday, Nov. 3 – from 8:30 a.m. - 6 p.m. each day.
