Numbers just released from the Louisiana Secretary of State’s office shows nearly 90, 000 voters cast their ballots.
That’s a new state record for the highest vote total in a single day of early voting.
In Lafayette Parish, more than 2,400 people voted.
More than 1,600 in Iberia Parish and more than 12-hundred in St. Landry Parish.
The gubernatorial race between incumbent Democrat John Bel Edwards and republican businessman Eddie Rispone is creating most of the interest.
