Election 2014: The Results

resultsThe 2014 midterm elections are over (well, not counting Louisiana, but more on that later). Now that the dust has settled, the electoral landscape has decidedly changed. From races to key ballot measures, we’ve got you covered with the results of the most important results of the 2014 midterms. So who are the big winners of the 2014 election?

And finally, back to Louisiana. Voters in Louisiana will have to do it all over again for their senate race. Since no candidate was able to secure 50 percent of the vote, they will now have a run-off election on Saturday, December 6th between Sen. Mary Landrieu (D) and Rep Bill Cassidy (R). More about that here.

We hope you all voted. Though the election may be over, there is still much work left to be done. Keep tuned to the League of Young Voters for more great things and content to come! Follow us on Twitter and Instagram (@theleague99).
