This segment from the October 13, 2017, episode of the series “Louisiana: The State We’re In” features Andre Moreau’s in-studio interview with Sue Lincoln, a political reporter for WRKF, and John Couvillon of JMC Analytics & Polling on the October 14th statewide elections. They discuss: the early voting numbers; the expectations for low voter turnout; and the lack of voter interest in the special election for State Treasurer. This segment also includes a clip of an interview with Dr. Joshua Stockley, a political science professor at the University of Louisiana at Monroe, who discusses the reasons why voters are not interested in the statewide elections.
