Louisiana Presidential Primary Results

July 11, 2020

Louisiana holds its presidential primaries Saturday.  Originally scheduled for April 4, the primary was first moved to June 20 before being postponed a second time.  Polls are open until 9:00 PM Eastern Time.  Results will appear below after that time.

Puerto Rico holds its Democratic presidential primary Sunday. On Tuesday, there are runoffs in Alabama and Texas, along with congressional primaries in Maine.  Several interesting races that night; we'll have an overview as it gets closer.

Louisiana has a unique system for elections other than president.  There are no party primaries, but instead all candidates in a race appear on a single ballot. This open primary takes place on Election Day, November 3. If one candidate gets a majority, they are the winner. Otherwise, the top two advance to a December 5 runoff.
