Voters in Louisiana have a choice in the November 7 election.
The Republican Party has the governor’s seat and the Democrats have control of the state legislature and the U.S. House of Representatives.
If you are one of those voters, what are your options?
Here are some of the possible paths for you.
Vote early In Louisiana, the early voting period begins March 14 and ends March 20.
Early voting begins March 20 and ends April 8.
If early voting ends on March 20, you can still cast a ballot by mail, online or by mail-in absentee ballot.
Vote by mail In Louisiana you can mail-ballot a ballot to a registered voter who can return it to you by mail or deliver it to your local post office.
If the mail-out deadline for a mail-to-mail absentee ballot is March 20 or later, you may still use a voting machine to vote.
If it is mailed out by a machine, you should bring the machine to the voting location and turn it on.
You can also use a vote tabulator, which is a device that allows you to tally votes manually, to count votes and tabulate them.
The machines are available at most polling places and they cost $15 to $30.
Vote in person In Louisiana is one of the few states in the country that requires voters to show photo ID before they can vote.
A voter must show proof of identity before he or she can vote, including a valid driver’s license or other government-issued photo ID.
In Louisiana and some other states, a person who is convicted of a felony is required to have a photo ID in order to vote and has to take a photo of himself or herself before he can cast a vote.
Louisiana requires voters who do not have a valid photo ID to present one at the polling place and provide it to the poll workers.
In addition, Louisiana also has a photo voter ID law.
Voters can vote in person at the polls with one of three forms of photo ID: a current Louisiana driver’s or voter’s license, a passport, or a valid Louisiana identification card.
In many counties, voters who lack photo ID will be allowed to vote by mail.
A photo voter is one who has a valid ID card, current driver’s ID, or current Louisiana identification cards.
In some counties, if the voter does not have photo ID, they must present their driver’s licenses, passport, and identification card at the poll to be allowed in the voting booth.
Vote absentee In Louisiana voters can cast an absentee ballot in person or by absentee ballot at a polling location or a voting location.
The absentee ballot process is similar to that for voting in person.
An absentee ballot must be brought to the polling location by mail and must be returned to the person voting at the location.
If a voter doesn’t have an absentee photo ID when they arrive at the voting site, the polling site staff will ask the voter to present his or her current photo ID and to provide the address where they will receive the ballot.
If this is not possible, the ballot may be returned by mail to the voter’s residence.
Vote for a different candidate In Louisiana the winner of the presidential election is determined by who receives the most votes in the state.
The state legislature is controlled by Republicans and the governor is controlled at the state level by Democrats.
The two major political parties control the governorships and legislatures in all 50 states.
A candidate with a plurality of the vote in a state election gets to be elected governor.
In order to receive the gubernatorial position, a candidate must earn the support of at least one-third of the voters in the general election, and the candidates who have the most support in the primaries must get at least 70 percent of the votes cast in the primary.
If no candidate gets the majority of the support in a primary, the top three candidates advance to the general elections.
Vote on Election Day In Louisiana election night is the last day of the primary and general elections before voters can vote again.
If your polling place closes, you must return your ballot to the location where you received it.
If not, you have until 8 p.m. on the last Sunday in March to get your ballot in a ballot box and vote at your polling location.
Vote using a computer There are two types of computers: touchscreen and paper ballots.
A touchscreen computer is a computer with a touch-sensitive screen and a computer keyboard.
The computer has a small touch screen and can display one or more graphics on it.
A paper ballot is a type of computer that can be attached to a ballot, but is not necessarily a computer.
A ballot that is sent electronically to the ballot box may have its image changed or deleted.
Election Day Registration and Absentee Voting The state elections board determines when and where absentee and voting ballots will be accepted.
