Item of interest
The delay between the election and the beginning of Mr. Comeaux's term is due to the change to the Louisiana State Constitution in 1975. Prior to the change, elections for Sheriffs, Clerks of Court and Assessors were held in the spring, with the general election usually held in May.

The victorious Sheriffs and Clerks would then take office on July 1st. Assessors, however, were required to wait until the tax assessment processes for that year were complete. Completion is December 31st.

In the Constitution, the elections for these offices were changed to coincide with the election of statewide officials during the preceding fall. Making a change in the starting dates for their terms was unfortunately not addressed in the constitutional revision process, thus causing the long delay between the election and when the term actually begins.
