MORE INFO ABOUT HOW TO REGISTER IN LA

You're eligible to vote in Louisiana if:

  • You're a U.S. citizen.

  • You're a Louisiana resident in the parish in which you want to vote.

  • You're at least 17 years old, and will be 18 years old in time for the election.

  • You're not currently incarcerated, on parole, or on probation for a felony conviction.*

Online

You can register to vote online using the Secretary of State's Online Voter Registration (OVR) system.

Regardless of how you register, you must show some proof of identification; registering to vote online is no different. When you register online, you must provide:

  • Your driver's license number or special identification card number.

  • Your audit code. *

    • This code is on your driver's license or your special identification card and it's labeled “AUDIT."

  • Your Social Security number.

* NOTE: If you don't have a driver's license or ID card (and therefore don't have an audit number,), you can continue the application online, print it, and mail it to your Registrar of Voters (see "By Mail" below).

By Mail

Register to vote by mail by completing the Louisiana Voter Registration Application (Form LA-VRA) and mailing it to the applicable address listed on the form.

  • Your local Office of Motor Vehicles.

  • The Department of Social Services.

  • Offices serving WIC, food stamps, or Medicaid clients.

  • Any office serving people with disabilities, including Independent Living offices.

If you register at a Registrar of Voters office, you must bring proof of age, residency, and identity. This proof can include your driver's license, birth certificate, or any other document that proves your age, residency, and identity.

Without photo identification, you can bring a document with your name and address such as a current utility bill or paycheck.
