NEW ORLEANS — Voters in St. James Parish will decide seven parish-wide races when they go to the polls Saturday. 

Voting ends at 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12. WWL-TV will have full coverage and live election results as the votes are tallied throughout the night. Bookmark this page, and download the new WWL-TV app for updates throughout the evening.

The St. James Parish President race tops the ballot, with all candidates running as Democrats. Peter Dufrense, Brandon Keller and Wanda Dumas Pierre are campaigning for that seat.

A St. James Parish Clerk of Court and five parish council seats are also up for grabs. 

In any race where no candidate tops 50% of the vote, the top two vote-getters will face each other in a Nov. 16 runoff.
