Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin is giving Louisiana residents a few reminders ahead of Election Day on November 16.

There are statewide candidate races in all 64 parishes, local candidate races in 61 parishes, and propositions in 44 parishes. Secretary Ardoin is predicting 51% turnout in the runoff election.

In preparation for Election Day, Secretary Ardoin is encouraging voters to remember:

- Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m. Anyone in line at 8 p.m. will be allowed to vote.

- Voters can find their polling location and a sample ballot by downloading the free GeauxVote mobile app for smartphones or by visiting

- Voters can also sign up for text alerts via GeauxVote Mobile.

- Voters should bring an ID with them to vote (Louisiana driver's license, Louisiana Special ID card, a generally recognized picture identification card with name and signature such as a passport or a digital license via LA Wallet). Voters without an ID will be required to fill out an affidavit, but will be allowed to vote.

Election results can be viewed in real time via GeauxVote Mobile or the Secretary of State's website at
