On this Page: U.S. Representative (6 congressional districts)
Results Expected: After 9:00 PM Eastern Time
The state has no party primaries. The November 6th vote is an "open primary", bringing together all candidates from all parties on one ballot. If someone receives a majority of the vote, that person is the winner. If not, the top-two vote getters, regardless of party, advance to a runoff on Saturday, December 8th.
Neither seat is up for election this year.
2020: Sen. Bill Cassidy (R, 1st term) | 2022: Sen. John Kennedy (R, 1st term)
Louisiana is one of three states where the next election is in 2019. Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) is the incumbent.
6 Congressional Districts: 5 Republicans | 1 Democrat
Races to Watch: None
All seats are safe for the incumbent party. There is some possibility a runoff may be needed in the 3rd district. However, that is very unlikely to change the ultimate outcome.
