On July 24, 2020, the filing deadline passed to run for state executive and judicial offices in Louisiana. Candidates filed for the following offices:
- Louisiana Public Service Commission (two seats)
- Louisiana Supreme Court (two seats)
- Louisiana Circuit Courts of Appeal (13 seats)
The primary is scheduled for November 3, and the general election will be held on December 5. Louisiana is under a divided government and does not have a state government trifecta. A state government trifecta exists when one political party simultaneously holds the governor’s office and both state legislative chambers.
