Among local proposals and property taxes, voters will decide runoffs for Louisiana’s U.S. Senate seat, Baton Rouge Metro council and Mayor-President.

Louisiana voters turned out in record numbers during early voting for the general election earlier this month, surprising the state's top elections officials.

More than 515,000 voters cast their ballots early in Louisiana's weeklong early voting period. That's 17 percent of the state's 3 million registered voters. By comparison, nearly 357,000 people early voted for the presidential election four years ago.
