Reworked La. elections plan crosses legislative hurdle

An emergency plan to increase early and mail-in voting options for Louisiana’s summer elections because of the coronavirus won approval Wednesday from key state House and Senate oversight panels, but only after the mail-in balloting expansion was scaled back from a prior proposal. Republican lawmakers who raised concerns about voter fraud and stalled the first plan submitted by GOP Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin lifted their objections once Ardoin more strictly limited the list of who’s eligible for mail-in ballots.
