BATON ROUGE, La. (LBM) – Today is the final day for online registration to vote in the Nov. 3 election.
According to a news release from Louisiana Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin, Louisiana residents can register to vote and make changes to their registration at GeauxVote.com. A Louisiana driver’s license or special ID must be used upon submission online.
Early voting is scheduled for Oct. 16 to Oct. 27 (excluding Sundays), from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Polls on Nov. 3 will be open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.
In addition to casting their vote for president and congress, Louisianans will have the opportunity to approve a number of amendments, including one that could protect state pro-life laws in the state.
Known as the Love Life Amendment (also known as Amendment #1), this change to the state constitution is needed because of developments in 12 other states. In each case, a state court ruled that it had found in that particular state constitution a right to abortion – but the rulings were based on creative interpretations of a general phrase or vague wording and not on anything that specifically stated such rights.
