Early voting in Louisiana officially ended yesterday. Election Day is just a week away. For the past few days, the lines outside the Caddo Registrar of Voters Office has been wrapping around the block. The registrar's office says they've seen a huge increase in early voters this year. Nationwide, early voter turnout has greatly increased above 2008 election turnout numbers. Voters in Texas and Arkansas still have a few more days to cast their early votes. Afterward, everyone will have to vote on Election Day, which is next Tuesday. Caddo Parish officials estimate that about more than 8,000 people voted early. Bossier Parish officials reported about 6,700 early voters. DeSoto Parish had about 2,000.
