BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The Southern University Marching Band made a big show Monday afternoon not on the field but in early voting.

With the countdown on until election day, some members of the 'Human Jukebox' made sure they got their votes in for the October 24 elections. 

"In many elections, especially the smaller elections, East Baton Rouge Parish has about a 20 percent turnout, but with the band taking the lead they hope that they can increase the number of persons who will take advantage of voting, especially early voting opportunities," said John F. Smith.

The band went to the office of the East Baton Rouge Registrar of Voters on St. Louis Street to cast their votes. 

The Jaguars are on the road at Texas Southern in Houston that day.

Early voting runs through Saturday, October 17.
