Drive thru voter registration and Census event today


The city of New Orleans and community groups today are encouraging people to come to the Superdome to get registered to vote and get counted in the 2020 Census.

Councilwoman Helena Moreno says the event will also provide a mask giveaway.

She says the drive thru at Champion Square is an opportunity to register to vote, update your registration, request an absentee ballot and sign up be a poll worker.

Separately, Census workers will be there to help attendees fill out their forms.

It runs from 9:00am to Noon.
