Deadline to register to vote is October 11

Voters who haven’t yet registered to vote in the Nov. 8 primary election, which includes the presidential race, along with several state and local races, have until Tuesday, October 11 to do so.

Along with the presidential election, voters statewide will cast ballots in the race for the U.S. Senate seat now held by retiring Republican David Vitter.

Voters in some parts of Lafourche will help elect a U.S. representative for the 1st Congressional District, which Steve Scalise, R-Metairie, represents.

In south Lafourche, the District 4 constable seat is also on the ballot.

Up for election in Lockport and Golden Meadow are the offices of mayor and police chief, along with five spots each for Town Council members.

Voters statewide will also consider six proposed constitutional amendments, most dealing with tax changes and financial actions the Legislature approved earlier this year.

In races with three or more candidates, if no one receives more than half the vote Nov. 8, the top two will compete in a Dec. 10 runoff.

Early voting is Oct. 25 through Nov. 1 (except Sunday and holidays) from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The polls will be open on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 8, from 6 a.m. through 8 p.m.
