Louisiana cuts early voting short for hurricane
NEW ORLEANS - Early voting is wrapping up sooner than scheduled in parts of Louisiana because of Hurricane Nate.
Meg Casper Sunstrom, spokeswoman for the Secretary of State's office, said voters in some southeastern parishes will have until 3 p.m. on Saturday to cast their ballots early.
The parishes affected are in the New Orleans-area, including Orleans, St. Bernard, Plaquemines and St. Tammany parishes.
Early voting will continue to close at 6 p.m. in the state's other parishes.
Saturday is the last day of the week-long early voting period. Louisiana has a statewide election Oct. 14, and New Orleans has a hotly contested mayor's race on the ballot.
