Races decided Oct. 14
In the October primary, voters selected Jeff Landry as the new governor and re-elected Lt. Gov. Billy Nungesser.
Races decided at qualifying
Qualifying for state and local races was Aug. 8-10. If a race had only one candidate at the end of qualifying, that person will take office at the start of the next term.
Incumbent Mike Strain, a Republican, won the commissioner of agriculture and forestry seat unopposed. Tim Temple, a Republican, won the insurance commissioner seat after opponent Rich Weaver, a Democrat, withdrew.
