Early voting begins Saturday for the Nov. 21 runoff, in which the governor’s race tops the ballot.
The early voting period continues through Nov. 14, excluding Sunday and Wednesday, when offices are closed due to the Veterans Day holiday.
Voters can go to parish registrar of voters’ offices and other satellite locations such as the State Archives Building in Baton Rouge. Hours of operation will be 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Voters can use Louisiana’s smart phone app, GeauxVote Mobile, to find out where to vote, what’s on their ballot and their voting districts.
“Early voting is a great way to conveniently cast your ballot on your schedule instead of having to fit it in on election day,” Secretary of State Tom Schedler said in a news release. “With turnout disappointingly low during the primary, I am strongly urging our state’s voters to engage in this important election. No excuses. Get informed and cast your ballot.”
Primary election turnout on Oct. 24 was 39.2 percent of the state’s 2.89 million voters.
Statewide, there are more than 150 candidate races including governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general as well as legislators. Additionally, there are 116 propositions in 51 parishes.
