|Elections in Louisiana|
The 1944 United States presidential election in Louisiana took place on November 7, 1944, as part of the 1944 United States presidential election. Louisiana voters chose ten representatives, or electors, to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president. Louisiana was won by incumbent president Franklin D. Roosevelt over New York Governor Thomas E. Dewey by a large margin of 61.20 percentage points.
