election day is october 12

For the first time ever, the Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge has collaborated with a dedicated volunteer in the Baton Rouge community to bring you a Voter’s Guide based on the Arts.

We sent a survey to all the Senatorial & State Representative Candidates for the upcoming election on October 12th, 2019. The survey includes thirteen questions about candidates’ stances on the Arts.

Of the 75 candidates, 7 replied to our survey.

Thank You to Kathy Edmonston, Malinda White, Everett Baudean, Patricia "Pat" Haynes Smith, Larry Frieman, Regina Barrow, and Beverly Brooks Thompson for participating in this survey!

And a special Thank You to Lang Baker, who volunteered the time and effort it took to make this Voter’s Guide happen.
