According to the Associated Press, Louisiana’s early voting records were shattered with more than a quarter of a million people casting ballots by Tuesday’s deadline.

Statewide, the seven-day total already doubled or nearly doubled counts in the 2004 presidential race and the 2007 governor’s race. State officials say that record tally doesn’t include all of the Orleans Parish early votes.
