BATON ROUGE, La.— Louisiana Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin provides the following elections update in response to Hurricane Zeta.

“As recovery efforts begin in Southeast Louisiana, our thoughts and prayers are with our neighbors affected by this storm. The Secretary of State's office is working in close coordination with local officials to assess the damage sustained by our election partners and infrastructure, including registrar of voters offices, clerk of court offices, warehouses, and polling locations.

Power outages remain the most widespread challenge and we are working with Entergy and other utility companies to assess and restore power to our election infrastructure. We will have a more thorough grasp of the damage to individual polling places over the next 24-48 hours and we will coordinate with clerks of court and local governing authorities if any emergency polling place relocations are necessary.”
