BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Several parishes will head to the polls Saturday for Spring elections.

Voters will have to choose between the 13 candidates vying to fill the Louisiana Senate District 2 Seat once held by Sen. Troy Brown. He resigned on Feb. 16, 2017 amid requests for his expulsion following allegations of abuse.

There are thirteen candidates on the ballot for the District 2 seat. If a run-off election is necessary, that would happen on May 27.
