The Louisiana Fantasy Sports Contests parish measures are on the ballot in each of Louisiana’s 64 parishes.

A “yes” vote supports allowing online fantasy sports betting, subject to legislative regulation and taxation, within each parish in which this question is approved. 

A “no” vote opposes allowing online fantasy sports betting within each parish in which this question is approved. Online fantasy sports would not be allowed in any parish in which a majority of voters rejected the proposition. 

Keep in mind sports betting is still illegal under Louisiana state law. Listen to ULM’s political science professor Dr. Joshua Stockley break it all down.
