Elections

Thompson ran for re-election in 2011. She was unopposed in the October 22 primary. Because Louisiana uses a blanket primary system, a candidate can be declared the overall winner of the seat by garnering 50 percent +1 of the vote in the primary. However, if no candidate reaches this threshold, then a general election would have taken place on November 19, 2011 between the top-two vote getters.[1]

In 2007 Thompson was elected to the Louisiana State Senate District 34. Thompson (D) finished with 14,301 votes and was followed by Willie Hunter (D) with 11,043 and Paxton Branch (D)with 2,378.[2]
