With weeks until the November elections, early voting kicks off in Louisiana Tuesday, with polls opening bright and early at 8:30 AM.
Registered voters can beat the crowds on Election Day and cast their ballots until the 30th.
Whether you are a first-time voter or done this many many times, it's always a good idea to jog your memory on what to expect when heading to the polls. And since this election is so big, it's important to be prepared. And that includes studying the ballot before you head to the polls, since you only have a 3-minute time limit.
Besides the presidential election, there is also 9 constitutional amendments, parish-wide propositions, the congressional race, and the public service commissioner race.
To speed up the process, the Registrar of Voters Office is asking people to show up with a government issued identification card, otherwise, it takes a while to verify people's information. Especially since there are almost 146,000 registered voters in Lafayette Parish.
Voting starts tomorrow and will end October 30th. Hours are 8:30-am until 6:00 PM. They are closed on Sundays. If you want to get a jump start on your ballot, you can head on over to the secretary of state's website at www.dotsos.la.gov .
