LAKE CHARLES, La. (KPLC) - All the votes in Calcasieu have now been reported

The polls closed in Louisiana at 8 p.m., but early voting in Calcasieu was not tallied until around 12:40 a.m.

Clerk of Court Lynn Jones said there was a delay in early voting results because of the number of mail-in ballots that had to be processed.

The Secretary of State’s website showed that 35,637 votes were cast in the presidential race today, but when early numbers were reported that number jumped to 82,659 - meaning around 47,000 people early voted in Calcasieu.
