Secretary of State Tom Schedler is encouraging all Louisianians eligible to vote in the Saturday, Dec. 8th election to vote early. Early voting begins Saturday, Nov. 24th and continues through Saturday, December 1st from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, excluding Sunday, November 25th.
"We saw a very high voter turnout of 67% during the Presidential Election in November and I hope registered voters will remain interested and engaged in our democratic process" said Secretary of State Tom Schedler. "Your vote counts in EVERY election, even those that aren't as high profile. We saw several races and propositions that were decided by less than ten votes," Schedler said. "Early voting is a great convenience if you anticipate being busy or out of town on Saturday, December 8th."
