Early voting begins Saturday for December election

Early voting begins Saturday for December election

Voters can begin casting ballots on Saturday, November 22 as the early voting period begins for the December 6 run-off elections.

While early voting runs through November 29, voters will only have the opportunity to cast ballots on four days during the voting period due to the Thanksgiving holidays.

Clerk of Court’s offices in Galliano and Thibodaux will be open for voting on Saturday, November 22 as well as Monday, November 24 through Wednesday, November 26.

Offices will be closed on Thursday, November 27, and Friday, November 28 for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Offices will reopen for a final day of voting on Saturday, November 29.

The December ballot will be a short one with only a few races on the ballot. U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu faces off against U.S. Representative Bill Cassidy in a runoff for the U.S. Senate while in Louisiana’s Sixth Congressional District, Garrett Graves will meet former Governor Edwin Edwards in a runoff for that position.

On the local level, Steve Miller will square off against John Erny, III, for the Division B, District Judge seat in the 17th Judicial District, which encompasses Lafourche Parish.
