COVID 19 VOTING PRECAUTIONS — Louisiana officials are asking for a federal appeals court to weigh in on a federal judge’s order expanding mail voting and early voting in the state. But they stressed that they are not trying to block the order ahead of the Nov. 3 election.  Republican Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin  filed a notice  Tuesday that he's appealing the  Sept. 16th  ruling by U.S. District Judge Shelly Dick who  ordered the state to reinstate  coronavirus pandemic voting plans that were successfully  used  for last summer’s elections.  A spokesman  for  Ardoin  says  “…the appeal seeks no changes to the November 3rd election.”
