Election Day is November 6th. Stand up and be counted!-Facebook

Here in Louisiana, we will not only elect or re-elect the President of The United States, but we will also elect someone to represent us in Congress as well.  Plus, there will be 9 amendments on the ballet as well.  Remember an educated voter is a powerful voter.  The best rule of thumb when it comes to voting is look at the sample ballot.  Second, make a cheat sheet of all your voting answers before going to the polls and bring it with you, that way your voting process will be quick and precise.
