Early Voting in Louisiana Opens Today & goes to the 26th except Sunday

Jay Dardenne and Caroline Fayard compete for the Lieutenant Governor’s post for the remainder of the term vacated by Mitch Landrieu since he became mayor of New Orleans.

Incumbent David Vitter and Congressman Charlie Melancon lead a pack of contenders for the US Senate.

There are constitutional amendments related to public nuisance property, disabled veterans privileges, the waiver of rights to a jury trial, the exemption from taxes for homesteads damaged by disasters, the effective date for pay raises in public office and the share of severance tax revenues that go to each parish.  I recommend one take time to know these proposed amendments.

These are the only statewide issues although others are on many other precinct ballots. I voted early today.
