BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Louisiana’s early voting period is wrapping up.

Voters have until 6 p.m. Tuesday to cast their ballots in advance of next week’s election, to choose the nation’s next president, to fill congressional seats and to select local elected officials around the state.

Secretary of State Tom Schedler’s office says turnout has been “extremely high,” breaking early voting records from the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections, with nearly 73,000 people voting each day.

In addition to the presidential race, Louisiana’s ballot includes the competition for an open U.S. Senate seat, with 24 contenders. All six U.S. House seats also are on the ballot, a Louisiana Supreme Court seat and a list of parish and municipal positions.

Six constitutional amendments also await decisions from voters.
