Here's how we compute the delegate count:
Tuesday 14 March 2000: 61 of 73 delegates to the Democratic National Convention are allocated to presidential contenders based on the results of the voting in today's Louisiana Presidential Primary.
The remaining 12 National Convention delegates consist of 11 Unpledged PLEOs and 1 Unpledged "add-on"; these 12 delegates will go to the Democratic National Convention officially "Unpledged".
"The breakdown of Unpledged Party Leader and Elected Official delegates to the Democratic National Convention below is somewhat different from that provided by the Democratic Party: the reason for this is that the one or more of its Members of Congress are also members of the Democratic National Committee and are considered to be DNC members (i.e. "Party Leaders") rather than Democratic office holders (i.e. "Elected Officials") by the Party. However, it is the opinion of "The Green Papers" that the average voter/citizen or other interested party who accesses this website would more readily identify Party Leaders who are also Elected Officials by their political office rather than their status as members of the DNC and we, therefore, count them as Elected Officials rather than as Party Leaders in the following breakdown:"

UNDIVIDED PARISHES (those wholly within one Congressional District):
DIVIDED PARISHES (those split between more than one Congressional District):
