2019 Candidate Questionnaire Responses

Lift Louisiana's mission is to educate, advocate, and litigate for policy changes needed to improve the health and wellbeing of Louisiana's women, their families, and their communities. This voter guide is intended to give voters information from the candidates about their positions on issues that impact women and families in our state. We organized the candidates by region to make it easier for voters to identify the candidates in their area.

We made every reasonable effort to obtain email addresses for every candidate that qualified to run for the Louisiana House of Representatives and Senate. We used the email addresses for the candidates found on their websites and Facebook pages. Candidates who did not list email addresses on the internet, were called and asked to provide an email address. Candidates that did not provide an email address are indicated below. 

Candidates were sent the questionnaire on September 6th and were asked to respond by September 20th. Candidates were called on September 19th and reminded to complete the questionnaire. Candidates who did not respond are indicated below. 

Candidates complete responses are included. 

For candidates currently serving in the legislature, legislative record is linked where available.
