Louisiana's spring elections have been moved back again, due to concerns over the coronavirus.

On April 14, the governor's office announced that Gov. John Bel Edwards has again postponed Louisiana’s elections. The governor's office says the move was made at the request of the Louisiana Secretary of State.

Now, the Presidential Preference Primary election in Louisiana is scheduled for July 11, 2020, from 7:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. The general election is now scheduled for August 15, 2020, from 7:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m.

The primary election was originally scheduled for April 4, 2020, with the general election to follow on May 9. On March 13, however, the governor moved the elections back. They had been initially rescheduled for June 20 and July 25, respectively.
