Statisticians — and sociologists — will be combing through lots of data from last week's presidential election, but early numbers suggest that two-thirds of eligible voters in Louisiana went to the polls to cast ballots. Nationwide, the turnout was a less impressive 56.5 percent, according to unofficial preliminary data from the United States Election Project.   The state's distinctive new "I Voted" stickers, featuring the George Rodrigue Blue Dog, proved popular on the trading market. As of last week, more than 100 "unstuck" stickers were popping up for sale on the online market eBay, most for between $10 and $20. One person was advertising a roll of 80 stickers for $1,100.
