Louisiana voters will once again return to the polls for the fall elections beginning on October 9, and according to Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin, we will see a return to normal voting policies for this election.

In an interview with the Louisiana Radio Network, Ardoin says, “Now that vaccines are regularly available they can take a vaccine, they can mask up, or they can do both."

Ardoin highlights that it's a completely different world than it was this time last year and with circumstances changing so much, it's time to get back to regular elections.

In our return to "normal circumstances", Ardoin explains that this election will not feature the expanded early voting opportunities seen last year during the pandemic. Ardoin says that policy was costly and resulted in the loss of some elections commissioners.

Those who were uncomfortable with the procedures and results of last year's elections will breathe a sigh of relief as Ardoin mentions, “We need continuity in that process so we are going to go back to our normal voting processes that we have in the past, and I think that things are going to work out.”

Ardoin even added that masking will not be a requirement to cast a ballot in this election.

So, exactly what will be seeing on some of these ballots? Along with a few local positions, we'll see a number of constitutional amendments related to tax reform.
