BATON ROUGE, La. — Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin is reminding Louisianians that early voting for the State Senate District 7 Special Primary begins Friday, May 28, and continues through Saturday, June 5 from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, excluding Sunday, May 30 and Memorial Day, Monday, May 31. Voters in three parishes will participate in the primary: Jefferson, Orleans and Plaquemines. Citizens who want to vote early may do so in person at the parish Registrar of Voters Office or at other designated locations.

Voters are encouraged to utilize Louisiana’s free, award-winning smartphone app, GeauxVote Mobile, to locate parish early voting locations, Election Day voting site, or view their sample ballot. GeauxBot, the virtual voter assistant, is also available to access pertinent election information such as registration deadlines, election dates, polling locations, and hours. GeauxBot is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by visiting www.voterportal.sos.la.gov or by selecting Elections and Voting on www.sos.la.gov.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, our polling commissioners will be supplied with personal protective equipment and will regularly sanitize designated areas and wipe down voting machines between each voter. Hand sanitizer will be provided to voters and masks are recommended, although not required.

In addition to a Louisiana driver’s license, a Louisiana Special ID or a generally recognized ID with picture and signature, voters may use a digital license via LA Wallet.
