Louisiana early voting has concluded: What we learnedhttp://www.nola.com/politics/index.ssf/2014/10/louisiana_early_voting_2014.html#incart_river
Black early voter turnout wasn't particularly high.
Black voters made up about 33 percent of the overall early voting electorate, and they make up about 31 percent of Louisiana's registered voters. This means the black community didn't overwhelm the early voting period statewide.
Around 77,500 black voters participated in early voting -- up from the 26,600 who participated during Vitter's Senate race in 2010 -- but far down from the 103,650 black voters who early voted in 2008, when Landrieu was last on the ticket.
A high turnout among the black community would likely be good news for Landrieu, who has typically had strong support among black voters.
