In Louisiana's general election on November 19, 2011, none of the state executive offices will be on the ballot. That's because in yesterday's primary election, all seven of the state executive races appear to have been decided.

Republicans currently occupy all of the seats, and the incumbents all appear (as of 12:02 am Eastern time) to have successfully defended their positions. The race for secretary of state is the closest by far; the unofficial results show incumbent Tom Schedler defeating Republican challenger Jim Tucker by 1.04%. Gov. Bobby Jindal captured a whopping 65.82%, while his closest challenger, Democrat Tara Hollis, earned only 17.87%.

The races for attorney general and treasurer did not appear on the ballot, as only one candidate qualified to run in each of the contests.
