YES on Amendment 2, Unanimous Jury Verdict for Felony Trials Amendment

Louisiana

What would the initiative do?

Amendment 2 would require the unanimous agreement of jurors to convict people charged with felonies. As of 2018, Louisiana requires the agreement of 10 of 12, or 83 percent, jurors to convict people charged with felonies. Amendment 2 would not affect juries for offenses that were committed before January 1, 2019.
