Here's a list of what's on the ballot for Saturday's election in the New Orleans area.

Louisiana's 2nd Congressional District Run-Off Election

Colleagues in the Louisiana State Senate, Troy Carter and Karen Carter Peterson have both run to represent Louisiana's 2nd District in the House of Representatives in previous elections.

Saturday, Louisiana voters will decide which Democratic state senator from New Orleans gets promoted to Congress. 

The New Orleans-based 2nd District seat is open because Democrat Cedric Richmond left the position shortly after he won last year’s election to work as a special adviser to President Joe Biden’s administration.

Louisiana's Second Congressional District includes New Orleans and a series of communities on both sides of the Mississippi River, extending further north than Baton Rouge.

Two candidates are running to represent the 82nd District, which includes portions of Metairie, Jefferson, and Elmwood.

Republicans, the candidates are Edwin 'Eddie' Connick & Laurie Schlegel.
