BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Louisiana will add four days to Louisiana’s early voting period for presidential elections. State senators Wednesday gave final passage to the proposal with a unanimous, bipartisan vote. The bill by Democratic Rep. Frederick Jones will increase in-person early voting for the presidential elections from seven days to 11 days. The measure heads next to Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards, who is expected to sign it into law. Louisiana’s majority-GOP Legislature has avoided many of the contentious discussions held in other states where Republicans have pushed bills to limit voter access to the polls.
