Tangipahoa Parish Clerk of Court


Parish Board of Election Supervisors 

Louisiana Revised Statute 18:423 establishes in each parish a Board of Election Supervisors.  The parish board of election supervisors supervises the preparation for and the conduct of all elections held in the parish. All papers filed with the parish board of election supervisors must be filed with the president or the secretary of the board. The parish board of election supervisors shall maintain a permanent street address, which is filed with the secretary of state, the commissioner of elections, and the clerk of court.

In each parish, except Orleans Parish, the board of election supervisors is composed of the registrar of voters, the clerk of court, the chairman of the parish executive committee of each recognized political party (or his designee who shall be a member of the parish executive committee of the same recognized political party), and one member appointed by the governor. The clerk of court and the registrar of voters may each appoint a designee to serve in his place on the parish board of election supervisors when he is absent from any meetings of the board.  Each parish board of election supervisors elects one of its members as president of the board, and may elect a secretary and any other officers it deems necessary.
