In a press release Wednesday, Louisiana Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin issued a reminder that early voting for the Dec. 11 election begins Saturday, Nov. 27, and continues through Saturday, Dec. 4, from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, excluding Sunday, Nov. 28.
“Our infrastructure is crumbling and communities are flooding, but Sen. Kennedy voted against billions of dollars to improve our roads and protect Louisiana communities from natural disasters,” said Mixon.
The 2020 presidential election was the perfect storm for early voter turnout in relation to the pandemic. Fast forward to this weekend’s election and local officials say this time around, turnout looks a lot different.
With the March 20 election days away, we asked the candidates for Lake Charles mayor why they are running and what makes them the best candidate. Sean Ardoin (D), Jesse Bernard (D), Nic Hunter (R), and Joshua Lewis (D), are on the ballot.
Our third candidate profile features Jesse Bernard - a political newcomer who’s worked with the city’s sanitation department for the last 9 years. With that experience, he says he knows what the city needs.
