BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Louisiana voters headed to the polls Saturday, July 11 to cast a ballot in the presidential primary.
Only voters registered as a Democrat or Republican are eligible to vote in the July 11 Presidential Preference Primary.
There were also several parish races.
Donald Trump and Joe Biden both won their parties’ respective Louisiana presidential primaries on Saturday, July 11. An election that has been postponed twice because of the coronavirus outbreak.
Biden formally clinched the Democratic presidential nomination weeks ago.
Trump won easily in Louisiana’s GOP primary where he faced four other Republicans on the state’s ballot seeking the nomination.
Biden, who was one of 14 Democrats on Louisiana’s ballot, also coasted to victory.
Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin’s office took extra precautions at polling locations as well, saying workers would regularly sanitize voting areas and wipe down voting machines.
Louisiana’s presidential primary was one of the latest in the nation this cycle, after being delayed two times from its original April 4 date.
In Louisiana it was a rare closed party primary, a state that generally allows all of its candidates regardless of party to run against each other at one time.
