The 2021 New Orleans mayoral election was held on November 13, 2021, to elect the mayor of New Orleans, Louisiana. 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. A runoff was scheduled for December 11, 2021, but was ultimately unnecessary. 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. During her re-election bid, she avoided a runoff after winning 64.7% of the vote.
