The Louisiana secretary of state's appearance at President Donald Trump's rally is raising questions about whether he's run afoul of state law barring the chief elections official from most political activity.

Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin appeared last week at Trump's Monroe rally for Republican gubernatorial candidate Eddie Rispone. Ardoin, a Republican, is running against Democrat Gwen Collins-Greenup in Saturday's runoff election.

Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin will unveil the fall 2019 “I Voted” sticker on Tuesday, Aug. 27 at 10 a.m. at the Paul and Lulu Hilliard University Art Museum on the campus of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Secretary Ardoin will be joined by the sticker’s artist at this event.

 “I Voted” stickers were provided for the first time in the history of the Secretary of State’s Office for the 2016 Presidential Election as a special election turnout initiative. Since that election, Louisiana’s voters have expressed a great deal of interest in continuing the initiative.

First Assistant Kyle Ardoin will take over the agency that handles elections starting May 8th . Ardoin is replacing Secretary of State Tom Schedler, who submitted his resignation papers in the wake of a sexual harassment scandal. Ardoin knows he’s been put in charge during a pivotal time for the department.

 

Ardoin says, "The purchasing of new voting equipment and the perfection of the 2018 congressional midterm elections are high profile, high stakes, and high impact for voters across this state."
