BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Early voting begins Tuesday in Louisiana for the November 8 election.
Louisiana residents will be deciding on a number of elections, including the race for U.S. Senate.
Incumbent Republican Senator John Kennedy is trying to secure another six-year term in Washington and is facing a challenge from several candidates, including Democrats Gary Chambers and Luke Mixon.
Incumbents Troy Carter, Garrett Graves, and Julia Letlow are also seeking re-election in the 2nd, 6th, and 5th Congressional Districts respectively.
A resignation means there will be someone new representing State Senate District 17 in the Louisiana Legislature. Caleb Kleinpeter, Jeremy LaCombe, and Kirk Rousset are running to replace Rick Ward.
Voters in Central, New Roads, and Zachary will decide on the race for Mayor in those three cities.
Across the state, Louisiana voters will decide on eight Constitutional Amendments, including one on slavery. The Public Affairs Research Council (PAR) has a full breakdown of each amendment.
Early voting will continue through Tuesday, Nov. 1 (excluding Sunday, Oct. 30) from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. Citizens who want to vote early may do so in person at their parish Registrar of Voters Office or at other designated locations.
