Early voting continues through Tuesday
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Early voting began last Tuesday around Louisiana, for people to cast their ballots in advance of the Nov. 4 election. The early voting period lasts one week, running through Tuesday, Oct. 28, from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
People who want to vote early can do so at their parish registrar of voters' office.
The ballot is going to be a long one for voters.
Louisiana's hotly contested U.S. Senate race, six U.S. House races, Public Service Commission seats, judgeships, local mayor's races, school board seats and 14 constitutional amendments await decisions.
"The ballot is extremely long so voters should do their homework," said Secretary of State Tom Schedler.
The Secretary of State's Office has a full list of early voting locations, a sample ballot and other details at: http://1.usa.gov/1Ft2b3V. The office also has a mobile phone app that can be downloaded, called GeauxVote.
