BATON ROUGE - Louisiana voters who cast ballots this fall will get an "I VOTED" sticker that could soon become a collector's item, featuring George Rodrigue's iconic Blue Dog.

Secretary of State Tom Schedler unveiled the new sticker Monday, saying he hopes it will help draw higher participation in the Nov. 8 election.

The sticker features the famous wide-eyed Blue Dog sitting in front of an American flag, an image created by Rodrigue in 2001.

Voters will get the sticker at any polling location on Election Day and all early voting sites.

In addition to the presidential race, Louisiana's ballot includes competitions for an open U.S. Senate seat, all six U.S. House seats and a long list of local elected positions. The last day to register to vote for the election is Tuesday.
