BATON ROUGE, La (NBC33) -  The 2010 U.S Census numbers are in - and Census officials say Louisiana is losing one congressional district.

Currently - there are 7 districts in the state.  After redistricting - only 6 will remain.

The loss of one seat also means Louisiana will have one less vote in the Electoral College - the way the President of the United States is elected.

We'll have more on the numbers and what it means for the State tonight on NBC33 News at 5:00.
