Early voting begins today, and runs through next Tuesday, November first.

“The presidential election is usually our Super Bowl, Final Four, all put into one,” Louisiana Secretary of State Tom Schedler says.

On the first day for in-person early voting in Illinois, President Obama went to the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center to cast his ballot.

"I'm so glad I can early vote here," he told the elections worker checking him in.

Early Voting at Record Level

Oct 31, 2012

Over 340,000 people voted early ahead of the Nov. 6 election. That’s about 12 percent of Louisiana’s 2.9 million registered voters. By comparison, during the last presidential election, a little more than 290,000 voters cast early ballots.
