ELECTION DAy oVerVIew It's Louisiana's Favorite Season- Election Season! by the office of Secretary of State Tom Schedler as the long, hot, louisiana summer comes to a close, our state's favorite season is quickly heating up. that's right - it's election season! the Gubernatorial elections are right around the corner with lots of statewide and local candidate races up for grabs as well as the fate of four constitutional amendments. secretary of state tom schedler and his office are prepared for robust interest and high voter turnout - the question is, are you? Here are the basics. Candidates will qualify for the fall elections between Sept. 8 and Sept. 10. After that period, we'll officially know who's running for what office and voters can begin preparing. The Primary Election will be Saturday, Oct. 24, 2015 with the runoffs or General Election on Saturday, Nov. 21. Polls open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. Remember, as long as you're in line by 8 p.m. on election day, you will be able to vote. If you hate long lines or worry that you might have other plans on Election Day, then on Saturdays you can always take advantage of early voting. Early voting in Louisiana begins 14 days prior to the election and runs for a week. So for the primary election, early voting will be Saturday, Oct. 10 through Oct. 17 -excluding Sunday. For the runoffs, Early voting 54 | loGa INDUSTRY REPORT | Fall 2015 will be Saturday, Nov. 7 through Nov. 14 - excluding Sunday. Early voting is held at each parish Registrar of Voters Office or at select remote sites. A full list of early voting sites can be found at https://voterportal.sos.la.gov/earlyvoting. Before heading to the polls, voters should review their sample ballot due to the number of candidate races, propositions and constitutional amendments. Remember, voters must cast their vote within the three-minute time limit, or if receiving assistance or using the audio voting keypad, within 20 minutes. If each voter is in the voting booth for three minutes, only 20 people will be able to vote per hour. Being prepared before entering the booth will limit lines and wait times on Election Day. Aside from viewing a sample ballot online at www.geauxvote.com, voters can also use our smartphone app, GeauxVote Mobile. A bonus to viewing sample ballots on the app is being able to mark the ballot to be used as a guide in the voting booth. For more information on the 4 constitutional amendments, visit the Public Affairs Research Council of Louisiana's website at www.parlouisiana.org. The app also provides a voter's polling place including directions and can be used to view real-time election returns on election night. Finally, while voter turnout is usually relatively high during gubernatorial elections, Secretary Schedler encourages voter participation through his Honor Vets... Vote program. Honor Vets was developed in 2012 to recognize those who have fought and sacrificed for our sacred right to vote, and to incentivize registered voters to participate on election days.
