Saturday, 8 December 2018, is election day and the polls are open from 7 am until 8 pm and anyone standing in line at 8 pm will be allowed to vote in tomorrows statewide elections. Statewide there are 134 candidates who are in runoff elections across 47 parishes. Some ballots only contain the secretary of state and propositions on them. But no matter the number of names on the ballot the important thing is to participate in the decision.

You can find your ballot and voting location by visiting the states voting site here.

According to Secretary of State Kyle ArdoinWe’re expecting turnout to be around 18 to 20 percent. Even though congressional elections are over, there are still important candidate races and propositions on the ballot. I hope every Louisiana voter will participate in tomorrow’s election. 

You must bring a photo ID with you to vote which can be a Louisiana Drivers License, Louisiana Special ID Card, or a generally recognized picture ID with your name and signature such as a passport or digital license from LA Wallet.

The SWLA forecast for Saturday means you'll also want to bring along a nice umbrella.
