In case you missed it, Louisiana voters went to the polls this weekend to, among other things, elect a new Louisiana State Treasurer. It comes as no surprise that, in the race for treasurer, there will be a run-off. In addition to the voting for Treasurer, we also approved three new statewide constitutional amendments.

In the run-off for treasurer, Derrick Edwards, D, New Orleans, received 125,503 votes (31 percent) and John Schroder, R, Covington, received 96,440 votes (24 percent) for the office of state treasurer. The runoff election will be held Nov. 18.Schroder previously served as a Louisiana state representative. Edwards, the only Democrat in the race, works as an attorney in New Orleans and has not previously held an elected office.

Schroder previously served as a Louisiana state representative. Edwards, the only Democrat in the race, works as an attorney in New Orleans, and has not previously held an elected office.

We also voted on three constitutional amendments, as well. One, a much talked about amendment, was Proposition 1. That proposition provided for an exemption of property taxes for construction sites. It passed. Another proposition was a homestead exemption for unmarried surviving spouses of first responders who were killed in the line of duty, which passed, as well. A proposition was also passed dedicating any new gas taxes to transportation and certain infrastructure projects.

As always, these results are complete, but they are unofficial until they are verified by the Louisiana Secretary of State’s Office.
