2019 Election Update
After the results of the all-party primary and the run off, Republicans now control the Louisiana House 68-35 with two Independents. Democrats flipped two Republican-held seats (HDs 19 and 105), Republicans flipped six Democratic-held seats (HDs 28, 30, 32, 38, 50, and 54), and Republicans flipped two Independent-held seats (HDs 22 and 55).
The table below shows the 2019 election results and indicates whether the results are from the all-party primary (APP) or the run off (RO). The LDI scores are from the 2019 cycle.
After the 2015 election, Republicans controlled the Louisiana House 61-42 with 2 Independent members. In 2016, Independent candidate Joseph Marino won a special election for HD 85, formerly held by a Republican leaving control of the chamber at 60-42-3. In 2017, Republicans flipped formerly Democratic-held HD 42, leaving control of the chamber at 61-41-3.
In March 2019, an Independent candidate won a formerly Republican-held seat (HD 62). That left control of the chamber at 62-39-4.
The Louisiana House is one of five chambers where members of the State House do not serve two-year terms.
Understanding the Map
EveryDistrict’s Legislative District Index (LDI) is the gold standard of state legislative competitiveness. Our LDI ranks state legislative districts on a scale from 100 to -100, using statewide elections data. Districts with a score of 100 would vote for statewide Democratic candidates by an average of 100 points (with the Democratic candidate receiving 100% of the vote); districts with a score of -100 would vote for statewide Republican candidates by an average of 100 points (with the Republican candidate receiving 100% of the vote). For a more realistic example, a district with a score of 10 would vote for statewide Democratic candidates by an average of 10 points (meaning we would expect the Democratic state legislative candidate to win with 55% of the vote compared to the Republican winning 45% of the vote).
After the 2018 election, EveryDistrict reviewed and enhanced our LDI system, improving the accuracy of the metric with new methodologies and the most recent electoral data.
