Description This election was contested, and the Louisiana Secretary of State would not certify either candidate as the winner. This tally represents the complete, uncertified totals. One election machine malfunctioned; counting the votes of that machine gave Moore the lead, but not counting them gave LaCaze the lead.

A new election was ordered.
