#VotingWhileBlack Voter Guide: Mayor-President — East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana

Former Louisiana state Senator Sharon Weston Broome (D) will face state Senator Bodi White (R) on Dec. 10 to become the next mayor-president of East Baton Rouge Parish — replacing departing three-term Mayor-President Kip Holden.

Baton Rouge faces a critical run-off race and voters will decide whether to bridge their divided parish or destroy it following the police shooting of Alton Sterling, the murders of law enforcement officers and the widespread damage wrought by the floods that ravaged Louisiana in August.

Follow this guide and understand both candidates’ positions on policy issues before hitting the polls this December.
