BATON ROUGE - The weeklong period for voters to cast early ballots in the Dec. 10 election opens Saturday, with a U.S. Senate seat, two U.S. House seats and dozens of municipal races remaining to be settled.

Secretary of State Tom Schedler, Louisiana's top elections official, said lines should be short during the long holiday weekend. Early voting is available through Dec. 3.

Top of the ballot is the competition for a U.S. Senate seat between Democrat Foster Campbell, a state utility regulator with the Public Service Commission, and Republican John Kennedy, the state treasurer. Louisiana's runoff will decide the nation's last U.S. Senate seat.

Early voting runs daily from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., except on Sunday, at local parish registrar of voters' offices and other designated locations.
