2022 Midterm Election Update

August 18, 2022 10:24 AM | Chelsey Blakenship (Administrator)

Although social media and a 24-hour news cycle certainly makes campaigning and political fundraising seem like a 24/7, 365-day event, Labor Day has still traditionally marked the official kickoff of the fall political season. Some new candidates have already started their Facebook and Twitter pages and incumbents are looking for opportunities to raise more money from their base. That said, this is the time to reach out and educate all of these political candidates. The open primary election date is Nov. 8 and the general election is Dec. 10.  You will have the ear of candidates more than ever from now until election day!

Louisiana elections use the Louisiana majority-vote system. All candidates compete in the same primary, and a candidate can win the election outright by receiving more than 50% of the vote. If no candidate does, the top two vote recipients from the primary advance to the general election, regardless of their partisan affiliation.
