What's on the ballot? Louisiana election only a week away
BATON ROUGE - Louisiana voters may not be paying much attention, but there's a statewide election only a week away. Top of the Oct. 14 ballot are the selection of a new state treasurer and decisions on three constitutional changes.
Secretary of State Tom Schedler predicts voter turnout might not reach 15 percent.
Six candidates are vying for the treasurer's seat, which is expected to be decided in a Nov. 18 runoff.
In all or part of 13 parishes, voters will fill a seat on the Louisiana Public Service Commission, a five-member panel that regulates utilities across the state.
Also on the ballot are several judgeships, two vacant state House seats and an array of municipal positions.
More details about what's on the ballot can be found at the Secretary of State's website.
