NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — Early voting for the Nov. 18 election is over and the numbers have been released.
Throughout Louisiana, 254,000 people went out and voted, in the week prior. That’s a reported 115,000 fewer voters than the October early-voting turnout.
In Orleans and Jefferson parish, early numbers were down nearly 50% from last month.
There is no runoff race for governor but several big races like Secretary of State between Democrat Gwen Collins-Greenup and Republican Nancy Landry and Attorney General between Democrat Lindsey Cheek and Republican Liz Murrill, are still up for grabs.
