Saturday is election day in Louisiana and this year's races have already set records for early-ballots. There are statewide elections in all sixty-four parishes, and local candidates in sixty-one parishes.

Cameron Parish along with Acadia and Pointe Coupee are the only three parishes without a local candidate. Louisiana citizens need to pay attention and form an opinion and make your marks.

Voting in person is easy and thanks to the hard work of our local registrars a speedy process as well. For election day remember the polls open at 7 am and close at 8 pm. If you are in line at 8 pm you will be allowed to vote, even if the line snakes around the block, you get your say.

You can find your exact polling location and a sample ballot to view using the states GeauxVote mobile app. You can get that app, sample ballot and other elector information by clicking here.
