In 2003, Louisiana's first election date was October 4, 2003 while the secondary election date was November 15, 2003.

Louisiana's elections operate in a unique manner. One primary is held with all filing candidates on one ballot. If a candidate receives 50 percent of the vote, they are declared the winner. Otherwise, the top two vote-getters move-on to a second election date, which typically occurs after the regular nationwide general election date.

  • Must be 18 years of age or older[1].
