Louisiana, unlike the other states, did not re-elect any judges this year, but instead filled 26 open seats on its courts. Much of the action happened on or before the October 19th primary, leaving only 18 candidates competing for 9 seats in the general election. This is partly because, in Louisiana, unopposed candidates are automatically elected without having to appear on the ballot.


The closest races were for the Rapides and St. Tammany Parish Justice Courts. In Rapides Parish, Patricia Paul, a Democrat, edged out Republican Paula Brady with approximately 53% of the vote. The St. Tammany race was even closer, where Anne Thompson won approximately 52% of the vote over Darryl M. Taylor. In that race, both candidates were Republicans.


The highly sought-after East Baton Rouge Parish Justice Court position, won by Republican Larry Spencer, drew a total of seven candidates. However, at nine candidates, the race for Orleans Parish Traffic Court was the most crowded. Democrat Steven Jupiter won that seat in the end. In both races, only the top two candidates from the primary advanced to the general election.
