East Baton Rouge residents who want to cast ballots in this year's congressional races, local elections and a pair of tax decisions still have time to register to vote.

The parish registrar's office is visiting libraries this month to sign up would-be voters and give current members of the electorate a chance to update their information.

Oct. 9 is the last day to register for the Nov. 6 election, which includes races for Congress and secretary of state as well as several constitutional amendments, including a proposal to require unanimous juries in felony cases. The Dec. 8 election will feature runoffs as well as tax proposals to decide whether to fund road improvements and a mental health crisis center in Baton Rouge.
