The 2021 New Orleans mayoral election was held on November 13, 2021, to elect the mayor of New Orleans, Louisiana.[1] Originally scheduled to be held on October 9, 2021, the election was delayed five weeks by Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards following heavy damage in the city by Hurricane Ida.[1] A runoff was scheduled for December 11, 2021, but was ultimately unnecessary.[2] The election will be a Louisiana primary; all candidates will appear on the same ballot.

Incumbent mayor LaToya Cantrell was first elected in 2017 with 60.3% of the vote.[3] During her re-election bid, she avoided a runoff after winning 64.7% of the vote.[4]
