BATON ROUGE - This year's election has resulted in a historical voter turnout and with Election Day just around the corner, officials are preparing for large crowds at polling locations across the state.

They're also reminding voters of important voting deadlines. For example, most Louisiana voters who do not wish to vote at an official polling station have until 4:30 p.m., Monday to complete absentee voting.

Those who have a bit longer to turn in their absentee ballots, according to The Secretary of State's Office, include military personnel and/or their dependents, as well as U.S. citizens residing outside the U.S., and voters who are hospitalized. Ballots from these individuals must be received by their parish registrar of voters by 8 p.m. CST on election day (Nov. 3).
