Your Voting Guide
November 6th Election
In the weeks prior to the election, we will announce our preferred candidates. These recommendations align with our values and the issues for which we advocate. We encourage you to look closely at how all candidates would use their discretion, spend the bulk of our budget, currently funneled into the industry of arresting and jailing our community. People’s priorities are reflected in the budget.
Early Voting can be done at:
- City Hall, 1300 Perdido Street, Room 1W24
- Algiers Courthouse. 225 Morgan Street, Room 105
- Chef Menteur Voting Machine Warehouse Site, 8870 Chef Menteur Highway
