Bomb threat to Jefferson Parish polling location prompts move
KENNER - A bomb threat made to a school in Jefferson Parish being used as a polling location for Election Day called for the precinct to move completely.
The bomb threat was made to Kenner Discovery, a health sciences academy where polling was taking place. While there were no children at the school due to the campus being closed for voting, election officials chose to move the polling location to JJ Audubon Elementary School.
Voting at Kenner Discovery for Precinct K007A & K007B is now located at Audubon Elementary (200 West Loyola Dr. in Kenner). Voters with questions about their polling location should call the Louisiana Secretary of State’s Election Hotline at 800-883-2805— Jefferson Parish (@JeffParishGov) November 8, 2022
It's unclear where the bomb threat came from.
