December Congresional Runoffs Bill Passed by Louisiana Senate Committee

Ballot Access News has the latest from Louisiana’s re-imposition of their jungle primary.

On April 28, the Louisiana Senate and Governmental Affairs Committee passed HB 292. It moves congressional elections back to the pattern used between 1998 and 2006. There are no congressional elections until November. All voters use the same ballot, and that ballot lists all candidates. If anyone gets 50% or more in November, that person is elected. Otherwise the top two finishers face off in December.

Thanks to Richard winger for bringing this to our attention.
