Lake Charles, LA (KPLC) - Louisiana voters head to the polls Saturday to decide on four constitutional amendments, in addition to local taxes and a few local races.

The polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m.

Voters in Calcasieu will be voting on the vacant seat in the 27th District of the State Senate.

Three candidates are in the running for the seat: Democrat Dustin Granger, Republican Jake Shaheen and fellow Republican Jeremy Stine.

The winner will take the place of long-time former Sen. Ronnie Johns, who served nine years as state senator before accepting Gov. John Bel Edwards’ appointment as chairman of the Louisiana Gaming Control Board in July.
