Louisiana is rescheduling its fall elections.
Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin announced today the October 9 election will now happen November 13 while the November 13 election will happen December 11.
Ardoin says the delays will help staff and local partners better prepare for a statewide election following Hurricane Ida.
He also believes the postponements will keep traditional voting habits from being disturbed.
Ida cause widespread destruction last week after landfall in southeast Louisiana.
