BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Outside of the Laborers Union Hall on Government Street, people were carrying signs and waving at cars.

Organizations came together to remind people the early voting period ends Tuesday at 6 p.m. and the polls don't re-open again until Nov. 4.

Voters are encouraged to do a little research before they cast their ballot because it's so lengthy.

"We're just encouraging people to participate in the process," one of the organizers said. "That's what democracy is and we want them to make sure they go vote."
