Louisiana Absentee Ballot Process

You must have a reason to vote by mail, unless you are a military or overseas citizen (please see below for more information for military and overseas voting). There are 12 reasons to vote by mail:

Louisiana Verify Registration Status

To see if your voter registration status is inactive, please use your state resource. This resource will tell voters if their registration is currently listed as inactive. If you have moved since the last time you voted, please re-register by the registration deadline.

Louisiana Registration Deadline

Louisiana statutes require you to be registered 30 days prior to an election (20 days if registering online) to be eligible to vote in that particular election.

You can now register to vote online! If you submit your application online you must have a Louisiana driver's license or Louisiana special ID card number to complete the process. You will also need to enter the last four digits of your social security number on the form.

Louisiana Election Dates

The next election is Tuesday, November 6, 2018 (General Election). The in person and mailed registration deadline is Tuesday, November 9, 2018. Online registrations are due by Tuesday, October 16, 2018.

Contact your local Board of Elections for more information.

Louisiana Provisional Voting

You must be a registered voter in the parish where you vote and eligible to vote in the election for federal office for your provisional ballot to be counted. There are several reasons why you may vote a provisional ballot. Those reasons are:

Louisiana Early Voting

You do not need a reason to vote early. All voters may vote early, just like they are voting on election day.

Voters who want to vote early for any election may do so in person at their parish Registrar of Voters office or at designated locations in the parish from 14 days to seven days before any scheduled election. For more information on dates and locations for early voting, please use your state's resource.

Louisiana Voters with Disabilities

Voters who are physically unable to vote in person at the polls on Election Day and unable to vote in person at the registrar's office may be eligible for the special program for physically handicapped voters. Call your parish registrar of voters office and ask for more details to see if you are eligible. Disabled voters may go to the front of the line at their polling place.

Louisiana Polling Place Locator

You can find your polling place by utilizing your state resource.

If you have further questions on your polling place location, please contact your county clerk.
