Early Voting Starts Saturday For Presidential Primary

BATON ROUGE (AP) — The Louisiana presidential preference primary for Republicans and Democrats is March 5, but early voting starts Saturday and runs through Saturday, February 27.

         Secretary of State Tom Schedler said in a news release Wednesday voters can cast early ballots daily from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., except for Sunday.

         Only voters who are registered to one of the two political parties will be able to vote for their party's nominee, because, unlike most elections in Louisiana, the presidential primary is a closed primary.

         The Democratic Party and the GOP will also have closed state central committee and parish executive committee elections.

         Those who aren't party affiliated may still have local elections to vote in.
