Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin is reminding voters that early voting for the December 5th election begins Friday, Nov. 20, and continues through Saturday, Nov. 28, 2020.

Voting will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, excluding Sunday, Nov. 22, Thursday, Nov. 26 and Friday, Nov. 27 (due to the state observed holiday for Thanksgiving and Acadian Day).

The Secretary of State's office says that citizens who want to vote early may do so in person at the parish Registrar of Voters Office or at other designated locations. Due to Hurricanes Laura and Delta, some polling locations have been relocated. For a complete listing of early voting locations, please visit https://voterportal.sos.la.gov/EarlyVoting.

Voters are encouraged to utilize Louisiana’s award-winning, free smartphone app, GeauxVote Mobile, to locate their early voting site, Election Day voting site, or view their sample ballot. GeauxBot, the virtual voter assistant, is also available to access pertinent election information such as registration deadlines, election dates, polling locations, and hours. GeauxBot is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by visiting voterportal.sos.la.gov or by selecting Elections and Voting on sos.la.gov .

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Ardoin says that polling commissioners will be supplied with personal protective equipment and will regularly sanitize designated areas and wipe down voting machines between each voter. Hand sanitizer will be provided to voters and masks are recommended, although not required.

In addition to a Louisiana driver’s license, a Louisiana Special ID, or a generally recognized ID with picture and signature, voters may use a digital license via LA Wallet .
