Secretary of State's Office is reminding voters that early voting begins Friday, October 16, and continues through Tuesday, October 27 from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.

Voting will not take place on Sunday, Oct. 18, and Sunday, Oct. 25.

Louisianians are being encouraged by the Secretary of State's Office to consider voting early for the November 3 Presidential and Open Congressional Primary election.

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 Hurricane’s Laura and Delta, the Secretary of State's Office says that some polling locations have been relocated.

For a complete listing of early voting locations, please visit https://voterportal.sos.la.gov/EarlyVoting.

Voters can utilize Louisiana’s 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.

The state says that 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, the Secretary of State's Office 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, they say.

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.
