Friday was the last day for candidates in Louisiana to get their name on the ballot for fall elections. The only statewide race in November will have nine candidates vying for the job of Secretary of State, responsible for overseeing elections throughout Louisiana.
State Representative Rick Edmonds (R-Baton Rouge) qualified for the race Friday, saying he’s ready to build transparency and integrity into the office.
“But also, it’s time to build a wall,” said Edmonds. “That’s right - it’s time to build a wall around our voting process and all of our data.”
