Washington Parish Election Results

In the only statewide contest in this election, the run-off for Secretary of State, Kyle Ardoin (R)
appears to have defeated "Gwen" Collins-Greenup (D). With 96% of precincts reporting, Ardoin has 60% of the vote to Greenup's 40%. In Washington Parish, Ardoin led Greenup 67% to 33%.

For Washington Parish Council Member, District 5, Thomas R. "Rusty" Fornea (R) defeated Randy Thomas (R) 67% to 33%.

In the hotly-contested run-off for Mayor of Bogalusa, Incumbent Wendy O'Quin-Perrette (NOPTY) won against "Doug" Ritchie 56% (or 1061 votes) to 44% (or 842 votes). Also in Bogalusa, Oneita H. Graham (D) led Shelby C. Temples (R) 59% to 41% in the run-off for Bogalusa Councilman, District C.  Two of the three propositions on the ballot in Bogalusa to fund the City of Bogalusa Employees Retirement System (COBERS) were approved. Proposition 1 (3 Mill Tax) was defeated 51% to 49% (a margin of only 28 votes); Proposition 2 (1% Sales Tax Rededication) was approved 55% to 45%; and Proposition 3 (1/4% Sales Tax Rededication) was approved 56% to 44%.

Franklinton voters voted “Yes” to approve all five of the “Wet-Dry” options. The February, 2018 Petition that was circulated in Franklinton and that triggered the vote was intended to gain voter approval for higher content alcohol to be served in the restaurants in Franklinton. The effort was successful. However, voters have also  approved options that will allow bars to sell alcohol of both low and high alcohol content.
