Election postponed

Local elections scheduled for April and May have been delayed due to the Coronavirus spread.  Louisiana Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin just moments ago revealed the plans at a news conference in Baton Rouge.

This announcement delays the April 4th election until Saturday, June 20th and the May 9th runoff election to Saturday, July 25th.  

The delay of the local elections means that Early Voting will not begin on Saturday, March 21st as originally scheduled.

More details on the election delay will be forthcoming from state and local election officials.
