ⓘ 2006 Louisianas 2nd congressional district election

The first round of the Louisiana House election of 2006 were held on Tuesday, November 7, 2006. The terms of all seven Representatives to the United States House of Representatives will expire on January 3, 2007, and will be put up for contest. The winning candidates will serve a two-year term from January 3, 2007 to January 3, 2009. If necessary, a runoff round will be held on December 9, 2006.

Louisiana uses a unique voting system to determine its representation in the U.S. Congress. Elections in Louisiana - with the exception of the election of the President of the United States - are subject to the open primary system called the jungle primary. Candidates of all parties are listed on one ballot, voters do not have to limit themselves to candidates of one party. If one candidate takes more than 50% of the votes in the first round, the election is then held between the two top candidates who may actually be members of the same party. This means that the outcome of some races may not be known until over a month later than the rest of the country.

The Louisiana races, especially in the southern part of the state was affected to some extent as a result of hurricane Katrina and also hurricane Rita, which caused massive damage in Louisiana. For example, most of New Orleans a majority African-American communities were displaced by hurricane Katrina.

All the congressmen of Louisiana won the election and avoid a runoff in addition to Democrat William Jefferson in New Orleans, is under investigation for corruption. He won against fellow Democrat Karen Carter. In 2016, this is the last election in which Democrats received more than one electoral district in Louisiana.

Note: To calculate the value of the Democratic and Republican parties in respect of the 2nd quarter, the jungle primary results, not the results of the runoff are used.
