For those voters who may be undecided (or just didn't get enough of this Sneauxmageddon-interrupted election season): WWL-TV will be broadcasting a mayoral debate tonight between incumbent Mitch Landrieu and challengers Michael Bagneris and Danatus King. The station's Karen Swensen will moderate, and the panelists will be WWL-TV's Sally-Ann Roberts and Mike Hoss, as well as Stephanie Grace, columnist for The New Orleans Advocate.

The debate begins at 6 p.m. and will be repeated tomorrow night on WYES-TV at 10:30 p.m., as well as uploaded to WWLTV.com.

And the winter weather caused the cancellation of a couple of City Council forums, at least one of which has been rescheduled for the very last possible minute: Friday night. District A candidates will face off at 6 p.m. at St. Mary's Dominican High School (7701 Walmsley Ave. at Lowerline St.). The event is hosted by the Carrollton Area Network.

Polls close Saturday night at 8 p.m. Gambit political editor Clancy DuBos will be on set at WWL-TV as the results come in, and Gambit reporters will be on Twitter reporting from various campaign parties and events around the city.
