BATON ROUGE – Voters hoping to cast their ballots early for Louisiana’s Oct 24 election have until Saturday to do so.

Early voting at parish registrar of voters’ offices and other designated locations will end at 6 p.m. Saturday.

At the top of the ballot is the Louisiana governor’s race and six other statewide elected jobs. Four candidates for Louisiana’s top executive position faced off at La. Tech Thursday night.

Voters also will be sifting through legislative races, competitions for seats at Louisiana’s top school board and local elected positions.

Four statewide constitutional amendments are also on the ballot. The Public Affairs Research Council posted a guide to all of the amendments and their proposed changes, including a printout guide to bring to the polls, at their website.

Secretary of State Tom Schedler said Friday he projects 40 percent to 50 percent voter turnout based on early voting patterns he's seen. That's less than the participation from last year's congressional elections.

For more information about early voting can be found at the Secretary of State’s website at GeauxVote.com
