The 1952 United States presidential election in Louisiana took place on November 4, 1952, as part of the 1952 United States presidential election. State voters chose 10[3] representatives, or electors, to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president.

Louisiana was won by Adlai Stevenson (DIllinois), running with Senator John Sparkman, with 52.92% of the popular vote, against Dwight D. Eisenhower (RNew York), running with Senator Richard Nixon, with 47.08% of the popular vote.[4][5] As of the 2020 presidential election, this is the last election in which Ouachita Parish, Union Parish, and LaSalle Parish voted for a Democratic presidential candidate.[6] This is the most recent election in which the Democratic nominee would carry the state without winning the presidency (although 1968 would be the last time a Republican would win the presidency without carrying Louisiana, due to the state backing George Wallace running on a third-party ticket).
