Mayor Slaughter to learn fate in Saturday election
BATON ROUGE - Tomorrow, voters in Port Allen head to the polls to decide whether or not they want a change in leadership.
Mayor Deedy Slaughter faces a possible recall, after 1,400 citizens signed a petition asking the state to grant the special election.
Slaughter has been the subject of multiple News 2 investigations for her spending habits and personnel decisions.
City leaders say they've seen record numbers ahead of Saturday's election. Nearly half of registered voters have already cast their ballots through early and mail-in voting.
Slaughter's recall is just one of several elections going on statewide.
Other ballot items include a tax re-dedication in Central to support school upgrades, the 5th congressional district seat and the first-ever parish president for West Feliciana.
Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
