BATON ROUGE - Early voting for the Oct. 19 election ends Saturday in Louisiana.
People will be able to vote early for the municipal and 5th Congressional District election from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday at their parish Registrar of Voters' Offices or other designated locations.
Secretary of State Tom Schedler said early voting had been light so far, with 26,558 people statewide casting early ballots.
"We are encouraging citizens to take a look at what's on the ballot in their parish and seriously consider voting early if they anticipate being busy on Election Day," he said.
The Oct. 19 municipal elections include votes in the following parishes: East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana, Iberia, Livingston, St. Helena, St. James, St. John, St. Mary, Tangipahoa, Terrebonne, and West Feliciana.
You can find early voting locations and read sample ballots at the state's Geaux Vote website, or download their free GeauxVote Mobile app for smartphones.
