This week a federal judge issued a ruling that would require Louisiana to expand access to mail-in ballots during this fall’s presidential election.  The ruling came from a lawsuit that pit voting rights advocates and Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards against Republican Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin.

The 2020 Democratic platform is 91 pages. Its section on reproductive rights — less than a page.

But that one page represents the culmination of the party’s shift from luke warm on abortion access to full-throated support of the full range of reproductive rights over the last decade.

The political tug-of-war over how Louisiana should conduct this fall’s presidential election continued Wednesday as the state’s top elections official and legislators took up the issue during a marathon meeting of the House and Governmental Affairs Committee.

Louisiana's elections have been pushed back another three weeks in response to the coronavirus. 

Gov. John Bel Edwards made it official with a proclamation Tuesday.
