Citizens wishing to vote must bring a recognized photo identification with them to the polls, such as a La. driver's license, a state Special I.D. card, or a passport. Voters without I.D. will still be allowed to vote, but must fill out an affidavit.

Each voter is allowed 3 minutes to cast a ballot, and voters in line when the polls close at 8 p.m. will be allowed to vote.

The Election Protection organization has materials to assist voters on Saturday. Additionally, a hotline has been established for people requiring assistance or experiencing problems casting their ballots: 1-866-OUR-VOTE (1-866-687-8683).
