BATON ROUGE - Early voting in Louisiana begins Tuesday, Oct. 21 for the Nov. 4 election.

The early voting period continues until Oct. 28 with voting times from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, except for Sunday, Oct. 26.

"This election has garnered a lot of interest throughout the state and early voting is a great way to conveniently cast your ballot," said Secretary of State Tom Schedler.

Besides congressional primaries such as the Senate race between Mary Landrieu, Bill Cassidy, and Rob Maness, there are 14 constitutional amendments for voters to consider as well. Schedler suggested voters do their homework before going to their polling place.

Voters can get more information on what's on the ballot and where their nearest early voting location is through the GeauxVote mobile app, or by visiting the Secretary of State's website. You can also call (225) 922-0900.
