Hurricane Ida recovery dampens election in Louisiana’s bayou communities

It was a slow election day with particularly low voter turnout in Louisiana’s bayou communities as residents in Terrebonne and Lafourche parishes are still recovering from Hurricane Ida. Election commissioners and parish officials stood outside the Clerk of Court’s Office in downtown Houma Saturday morning and greeted the occasional pedestrian that walked by. “Hi, are you here to vote?” they said, offering directions to the polls. They even knew several of the voters by name. Wes Mueller, Louisiana Illuminator.
