Louisiana Electoral Votes
How many electoral votes does Louisiana have?

The electoral votes from Louisiana and the other states are used to elect a President and Vice President every four years. Whichever Presidential candidate gets the majority of the electoral votes becomes the President.

Louisiana is given one electoral vote for each Louisiana congressional district, in addition to one electoral vote for each of the two Louisiana Senators. In other words, the number of electoral votes Louisiana has depends on how many Representatives Louisiana has in Washington, D.C.

The number of Senators Louisiana has does not change, but the number of Louisiana congressional districts is based on the last census.

Like every other state, Louisiana has 2 Senators. Furthermore, Louisiana currently has 6 congressional districts. Thus, Louisiana has a total of 8 Representatives in Washington, D.C.

Therefore, the answer to the question "How many electoral votes does Louisiana have?" is 8.
