Early voting hours will be from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

In East Baton Rouge Parish, early voting will be at the three offices of the Registrar of Voters and at the State Archives Building on Essen Lane. The locations are as follows:

Raborn encourages voters to view the sample ballot online at www.GeauxVote.com prior to voting. 

"Arriving at the polling place prepared expedites the process for everyone. We are expecting heavy voter turnout, and this year's ballot is long due to numerous candidates running for President, the U.S. Senate, Congress, Mayor-President, and the Metro Council. In addition, the ballot includes six proposed amendments to the state constitution as well as some other propositions in selected parts of the parish," said East Baton Rouge Parish Registrar of Voters Steve Raborn.

Early voters must present a Louisiana driver's license, a Louisiana special identification card, or other generally recognized photo ID. Voters with no photo identification may vote after completing an Identification Affidavit.

    WAFB ARCHIVES: Former Mississippi sharecropping family, all college graduates, reunite for Thanksgiving meal

    Thanksgiving is about sharing, so we want to share something with you. In 1978, CBS news' "On The Road" segment was hosted by Charles Kuralt. He found a family of 11 in Prairie, Mississippi, all coming home for Thanksgiving. All nine children had memories of a sharecropper's cabin and nothing to wear and nothing to eat. All nine are college graduates.
