Judge voids result of Louisiana sheriff’s election decided by a single vote and orders a new runoff

December 19, 2023

A judge has voided the result of a Louisiana sheriff's election that was decided by a single vote and ordered a new runoff be held, saying there is evidence a handful of ballots were cast illegally. Ruling this week, specially appointed Judge E. Joseph Bleich ordered a new election for sheriff in Caddo Parish, one of Louisiana's most populous parishes, in the northwest corner of the state. Democrat Henry Whitehorn had been declared the winner last month after topping Republican John Nickelson by the slimmest of margins, from more than 43,000 ballots cast.
