General Election Day is a state holiday the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November in even-numbered years. The Open Primary/Congressional Election is scheduled on November 4, 2014.

Louisiana Revised Statute 1:55 declares days of public rest and legal holidays: http://www.legis.state.la.us/lss/lss.asp?doc=74097

Other dates may be proclaimed as holidays by the Governor. Dates proclaimed as holidays by the Governor are found in the Civil Service "General Circulars" at: http://www.civilservice.louisiana.gov/Publications/GeneralCirculars.aspx
