Adrian Perkins

Elected Mayor


The 2022 Shreveport mayoral election will take place on November 8, 2022, with a runoff election on December 10 if no candidate obtains a majority of the vote in the first round. It will select the next mayor of Shreveport, Louisiana. Incumbent Democratic mayor Adrian Perkins is seeking re-election to a second term in office. If he succeeds, he would be the first Shreveport mayor to win a second term since Cedric Glover did so in 2010. Since 1998, every Shreveport mayoral race has been won by a Democrat.[1]


Democratic Party

Perkins was initially disqualified from the race by the First District Court of Louisiana for listing the incorrect address on his notice of candidacy. However, the Louisiana Supreme Court overturned that ruling and allowed Perkins's candidacy to continue in a 4-3 decision, ruling that answering certain questions incorrectly on a notice of candidacy is not grounds for immediate disqualification.[2]
