Live results: 2019 Louisiana gubernatorial primary

Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards, first elected in 2015, is seeking a second term. Under Louisiana’s unique system, all the candidates run together on the ballot. If one candidate wins a majority of the votes cast, that candidate wins the race. If no candidate wins a majority, the top two finishers will advance to the general election on Nov. 16.

Polls show Edwards just shy of the 50 percent threshold — with Republicans Ralph Abraham, a congressman, and Eddie Rispone, a self-funding businessman, jockeying for second place and a spot in a possible runoff.
