Louisiana Primary

The so-called Louisiana primary is the common term for the Louisiana general election for local, state, and congressional offices. On election day, all candidates for the same office appear together on the ballot, often including several candidates from each major party. The candidate who receives a simple majority is elected. Only if no candidate wins a simple majority in the first round, there is a runoff one month later between the top two candidates to determine the winner.
