Louisiana Bill Calls For Early Voting For AllH.B. 336, an early voting bill sponsored by Representative Wayne Waddell, passed both houses of the Louisiana legislature and has been sent to the governor. Under the current system, only citizens meeting certain requirements may cast an absentee ballot in person prior to election day. This bill will create a true early voting system by opening this option to all eligible voters. Early voting is an important electoral reform because it increases the number of people who are able to vote and reduces polling place lines on election day.
