More than 9,500 Lafayette Parish registered voters have asked for mail-in ballots for the Nov. 3 presidential election, double the number who requested mail-in ballots for the July closed primary election, our media partners at The Advocate report.

Louisiana is not one of those states that mails early voting ballots to every registered voter. So if you want to vote in the Nov. 3 election but can't get to the polls in person or don't want to because of the COVID-19 pandemic, you must request a mail-in ballot by 4:30 p.m. Oct. 30 and it must be in the hands of the Registrar of Voters by 4:30 p.m. Nov. 2, the day before the election, the newspaper reports.
