EBR Registrar of Voters to retire at end of month
BATON ROUGE - After 43 years of service for East Baton Rouge Parish, Registrar of Voters Elaine Lamb announced Monday her intention to retire at the end of the month.
Lamb told her staff today that she wanted to retire at the end of December, but she had to put her retirement on hold as petitions to create the new city of St. George came up in October. She told staff she felt obligated to continue serving in her current position through the process.
Lamb took on the EBR Registrar of Voters position in 2002 and has been with the city-parish since 1972. She told staff she intends to spend time with her husband and family following her May 31st retirement.
The Metro Council will have 30 days to appoint a new Registrar after the position becomes vacant on June 1.
