Today could be the last day for Port Allen's mayor.

If Deedy Slaughter doesn't challenge the results of the November 16th recall election, she has to be out of her office by 4:30 pm.

She lost by 300 votes, but 69 of the early or mail-in ballots were never counted according to the West Baton Rouge board of election supervisors.

NBC 33 still hasn't heard why.

If Mayor Slaughter doesn't challenge the election results, Port Allen will have 20 days to name her temporary replacement.

The interim mayor will fill-in untill the April 15th election.

Slaughter can run for mayor again, if she wants to.

But if Slaughter does challenge the recall results today, a state district judge will hear the case within four days.

Slaughter was the first politician ever recalled in Port Allen.

We will update this story as it develops.
