Early voting ends with huge turnout in EBR
BATON ROUGE - The Secretary of State's Office said Tuesday that more voters in East Baton Rouge Parish had gone to the polls early than anywhere else in the state.
Tuesday, the last day of early voting, brought out double the amount of people than any other day this week. Early voting ended at 6 p.m.
At the State Archives building, people stood in line for 40 minutes waiting to cast their vote.
Some voters turned out to early because they simply can't make time next Tuesday, or early voting is more convenient for them.
"I'm working, so this is a convenient time for me to do it," said voter Jennifer Fresina.
The Secretary of State's Office said this year's ballot is the longest in a decade. There are 14 constitutional amendments that held some people up if they were reading them for the first time.
Election day is Nov. 4.
