BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Many voters headed to the polls to vote in the runoff election Saturday.

Nearly 300 voters at six precincts in Port Allen cast their ballots.

The big-ticket item in the city is the mayoral race.

Turnout in the Capital City was not much different.

The stream of voters seemed pretty steady throughout the day.

Those who did get out to vote encouraged everyone to get out and exercise their right.

"And, some people just feel like it's okay, but it's not okay," said Cathleen Everson. "You're supposed to come out and vote just like you did for the first primary."

"It is our civil duty to vote and we all need to count," added Debra Garlington. "So, we need to come out and...and count."
