Today is the last day to register to vote in Louisiana's Dec. 6 runoff election. Early voting will begin Sat. Nov. 22 and run through Sat. Nov. 29. 

Due to the holiday calendar, though, the calendar will be abbreviated

Early voting doesn't take place on Sundays in Louisiana — and with Thanksgiving falling in the middle of the early voting period, there also will not be early voting on Thu. Nov. 27 and Fri. Nov. 28, according to Meg Casper of the Louisiana Secretary of State's office.

Secretary of State Tom Schedler says early voting is accounting for about 1 out of 5 ballots cast in the state now, and anyone can opt for early voting for any reason. For more information, visit the state website.
