Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible to vote you must be:

  • A U.S. citizen
  • A resident of Louisiana
  • At least 17 years old (16 years old if registering in person at the Registrar of Voters office or Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles) and 18 years old prior to the next election to vote
  • Not currently under an order of imprisonment for conviction of a felony
  • Not currently under a judgment of interdiction for mental incompetence

Incarcerated Voters & Voters with Felony Convictions: 

In Louisiana, you lose your right to vote if you are convicted of a felony or an election offense. You regain your eligibility upon the completion of your sentence (including parole or probation) or five years after your release from prison, whichever is sooner. Individuals convicted of an election offense will have their rights restored upon completing their sentence, including parole and probation.  

Voters without Traditional Residence: 

In Louisiana, voters must provide a residence address for voter registration purposes. When providing the residence address, post office boxes should not be used. Individuals without a permanent or fixed home may draw a map in the designated box on their voter registration form to indicate the exact location of where they stay. They should write the names of the nearest streets and mark an X to represent their primary location. They may use dots to indicate schools, churches, stores, or landmarks near their residence, and include the name of the landmark. If the individual does not receive postal service at their residence address, they must provide a separate mailing address, including the number, street, city, state, and zip code. A post office box can be used for this purpose.
