BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Louisiana legislators will kick off their redistricting roadshow at Southern University on Tuesday, Nov. 16.

The dates for the Roadshow are as follows:

  • November 16: Capitol Area/Baton Rouge
  • November 30: Northshore/Covington
  • December 15: Southwest Louisiana/ Lake Charles
  • January 5: Orleans Metro/New Orleans
  • January 11: Bayou Region/Thibodaux
