BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) Louisiana residents who want to vote in the Aug. 28 congressional primaries have until Wednesday to register or to change their political party affiliations in advance of the election.
The Secretary of State's Office says Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. is the voter registration deadline, to make it in time for the primaries next month.
People can register to vote or change their registrations online at www.GeauxVote.com or at their local registrar of voters' office.
The Aug. 28 ballot includes party primaries in the U.S. Senate race, with both Republican incumbent David Vitter and his main Democratic challenger Charlie Melancon facing opponents in their respective parties.
Several congressional districts around the state also have party primaries.
