Louisiana's 1st State Senate district
Louisiana's 1st State Senate district is one of 39 districts in the Louisiana State Senate. It has been represented by Republican Senator Sharon Hewitt since 2016.
District 1 is largely based in St. Tammany Parish in Greater New Orleans, stretching south to also include smaller parts of Orleans, Plaquemines, and St. Bernard Parishes. The uninhabited Chandeleur Islands are also located within the district.
The district overlaps with U.S. congressional districts 1 and 2, and with Louisiana House of Representatives districts 74, 76, 90, 103, and 104.
Recent election results
Louisiana uses a jungle primary system. If no candidate receives 50% in the first round of voting, when all candidates appear on the same ballot regardless of party, the top-two finishers advance to a runoff election.
