Louisiana Early Voting Numbers Break Records


Early voting has concluded across the state, and Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin is proud to announce record-breaking turnout numbers. 964,181 Louisiana voters demonstrated enthusiasm and resolve during the challenging times of a pandemic to make their voices heard in the election. 


"A pandemic or two hurricanes did not prevent nearly one million Louisianians from exercising their right to vote during early voting,” Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin said. “Louisiana voters are energized and eager to make their voices heard in critical elections from the presidency down to local races. It is my strong desire to see 2020 set the record for Louisiana’s highest turnout.”
