The fall elections of 2015 will be a historic date, especially in Caddo Parish, when the Sheriff and the District Attorney could be elected on the same date.
According to Caddo Registrar of Voters, Ernie Roberson, “This never happened in the previous century as their election dates never coincided,” adding, “For Caddo, the election of its two top law enforcement officials during the same election cycle is sure to enhance interest and election turnout.”

Governor, Attorney General, Secretary of State, State Treasurer, Commissioner of Agriculture , Commissioner of Insurance and Board of Elementary and Secondary Education plus all State Senators and Representatives.
