Louisiana and Alaska?

Some of them have townships, I think. Weirdos.

I can only think of two, although there may be more. So for partial credit I'll say that Louisiana has parishes and Alaska has boroughs.

Hmmm...that is a tough one. The easy one in my mind is Louisiana with its parishes. But since your question is in plural form, you have me a bit stumped. I know there are some New England state which use something else but I am not sure which and what they are called without Googgling.

That would be Louisiana, which has Parishes, and Alaska, which has nothing.

Louisiana has Parishes. All the others hav counties, that I know of, but I might be missing one.

Chanman said...

I know that Louisiana is one - it has parishes instead.

I'm shocked that I got it right. I knew about Alaska from having lived there for five years, and somewhere I picked up about Louisiana and its parishes, but I would have been willing to bet that there were more. I figured that some of the commonwealths probably used boroughs or another term.
