St. Charles Parish residents voted in significant numbers Tuesday as more than 11,000 went to the polls.

They helped re-elect two congressmen and put eight amendments into the state constitution.

Incumbents Bobby Jindal in the First Congressional District and Charles Melancon in the Third District were re-elected with majorities in the parish and in their districts which include parts of the parish. Jindal, a Republican, claimed a whopping 88 percent of the vote in St. Charles with 2,571 votes. Opponents received 220 for Democrat David Gereighty, 80 for Democrat Stacey Tallitsch and 32 for Libertarian Peter Beary.

Democrat Melancon received 4,406 votes in the parish - - 52 percent - - with 3,618 going to Republican Craig Romero, 260 to Democrat Olangee Breech and 133 to Libertarian James Blake Jr.

All eight of the proposed state constitutional amendments were favored in the parish with Amendment 7 reducing the number of assessors in New Orleans from 7 to 1 getting 87 percent for. Amendment 8, providing a separate school district for Central in East Baton Rouge Parish, barely got a majority with 52% of the vote.
