ABOUT THIS STATE
Louisiana! The Pelican is your state bird and that makes sense because you're both graceful and can hold multiple fish in your mouth. But we digress. This election is coming up fast and we need your help! Here is everything you need to know so that you and your loved ones are fully prepared for what might be the biggest election of our lives. On Election Day, drive your parade float to your nearest polling site and make your voice heard. Louisiana will be holding an election on November 8, similar to other states, but refers to this election as a "Primary" and what would be considered a runoff as its "General" on December 10. It will also have local elections on March 26 and April 30. Get informed and vote! (Source: Ballot Ready)

what's new in Louisiana voting since 2020
Good news Louisiana! Your voting system has gotten a little bit better. Early voting now starts 4 days earlier than it used to, beginning 18 days before Election Day and ending 7 days before Election Day. Plus, state law enables parishes to open more locations for early voting. So get out there and vote!

Vote Save the Senate Fund
If we can increase our majority to 52 Senate seats in 2022, Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema’s refusal to change the filibuster won’t matter. We can elect a Democratic majority that takes decisive action on raising the minimum wage, forgiving student debt, fighting climate change, protecting reproductive freedom, and more. But that will only work if we also protect the four most vulnerable Democratic incumbents in purple states like Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, and New Hampshire.
