Notice of filing dates for special election.

SUMMARY:

Louisiana has scheduled a Special General Election on October 19, 2013, to fill the U.S. House of Representatives seat vacated by Representative Rodney Alexander. Under Louisiana law, a majority winner in an open special election is declared elected. Should no candidate achieve a majority vote, a Special Runoff Election will be held on November 16, 2013, between the top two vote-getters.

Committees participating in the Louisiana special elections are required to file pre-and post-election reports. Filing dates for these reports are affected by whether one or two elections are held.
