Early Voting For Gubernatorial Election Starts This Weekend

The most powerful thing you possess as an American is the power to vote.  Voting is power and it’s your right.  Stand up and be counted.  You know what they say: “If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything”.

This weekend starts early and absentee voting for the upcoming election.  You’ll only be able to cast a ballot if you’re already registered to vote.  However, if you want to be able to vote in the Nov. 19 runoff elections, you still have until Wednesday, Oct. 19 to get it done!  And you can get it done online, too!

Google Images allows Louisiana residents to sign up to vote with little hassle.  Just go there and fill out the information they ask you for.  You’ll be sent a voter card that lets you know which districts you belong to.

If you’re already registered to vote, then it’s time to get some knowledge about your candidates and constitutional amendments.  The Public Affairs Research Council (PAR) of Louisiana has a free guide you can download that explains each constitutional amendment.

Early and absentee voting for the Oct. 22 gubernatorial primary is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 8 through Saturday, Oct. 15 (excluding Sunday, Oct. 9) from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the following locations:


Remember, you don’t need an excuse to early vote anymore.  It’s open to all registered voters.

The main items on the ballot include: La. Governor; La. Lt. Governor; La. Secretary of State; La. Commissioner of Agriculture; La. Commissioner of Insurance; BESE Board Dist. 7; La. State Senate Dist. 30; La. State Rep. Dist. 12 and 34; Calcasieu Parish Assessor; Calcasieu Parish Police Jurors Dists. 2, 4, 5, 7, 9, 10, 12, 13 and 14; five state constitutional amendments; several tax propositions
