Louisiana, La (NBC33) — Early voting for the November election continued today at spots across East Baton Rouge Parish.
Many locations had lines longer than yesterday’s. Some of the hundreds voting today had to wait more than an hour to cast their ballot.
Just yesterday, the state broke the record when it came to early voting.
Here's a look at the numbers according to the Secretary of State's Office:
Just over 39,000 people voted early yesterday across the state, which is up 24 percent from the 2008 presidential election.
Yesterday in EBR Parish alone, almost 3,500 people cast their ballot.
