The 1940 United States presidential election in Louisiana took place on November 5, 1940, as part of the 1940 United States presidential election. Louisiana voters chose ten[2] representatives, or electors, to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president.

Louisiana was won by incumbent President Franklin D. Roosevelt (DNew York), running with Secretary Henry A. Wallace, with 85.88% of the popular vote, against Wendell Willkie (RIndiana), running with Minority Leader Charles L. McNary, with 14.09% of the popular vote.[3][4]

By percentage of the vote carried, Louisiana was the third-most lopsided contest in the nation, only behind South Carolina and Mississippi, whose margins both exceeded 90% in favor of Roosevelt.
