Top of the ballot is the governor’s race, with Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards seeking a second term in office against five opponents.

His two main Republican challengers are U.S. Rep. Ralph Abraham and businessman Eddie Rispone.

Voters also are deciding whether to keep six other statewide elected officials in office, choosing state House and Senate members and weighing in on four constitutional amendments.

In any race where no candidate tops 50% of the vote, the top two vote-getters will face each other in a Nov. 16 runoff.

The secretary of state’s office has a complete list of early voting sites online.
