Early voting begins Saturday for May 4 elections, with the future of the Crescent City Connection tolls once again on the ballot in Orleans, Jefferson and Plaquemines parishes.
Locally, there are also runoffs for an Orleans Juvenile Court seat and a Jefferson Parish judgeship on the ballot, as well as several tax millage renewals in Jefferson Parish, a Westwego mayor and council runoff and St. Charles Parish council district runoff.
The CCC tolls issue will most likely get the most attention from voters. This second election for the bridge tolls issue was called for after a judge nullified the Nov. 6 election results, in which voters renewed the tolls by a razor-thin margin of 36 votes, which were challenged in court because of alleged voting irregularities.
Voters in Orleans, Jefferson and Plaquemines Parish only will decide whether tolls on the bridge should be renewed for another 20 years. Since Judge William Morvant called for the new election, tolls on the bridge have been suspended.
