BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Voters wanting to cast their ballots early in Louisiana’s two special congressional elections must do so by Saturday.
The weeklong early voting period is ending for the March 20 special elections. Those elections will fill the New Orleans-based seat that Democrat Cedric Richmond departed to work as a special adviser to President Joe Biden and the northeast Louisiana-based seat left unfilled when Republican Luke Letlow died of COVID-19 complications before he was sworn into office.
Fifteen candidates are seeking the New Orleans-based 2nd District job. Letlow’s widow and 11 other contenders are vying for the northeastern-based 5th District position.
Early voting ends Saturday at 6 p.m.
