Ways to Vote

Voting by Mail

Who can vote by mail?

If you registered to vote by mail and you have not previously voted in the parish, you must vote in person the first time either during early voting, or on election day, unless an exception applies. Exceptions include:

  • military or overseas citizens
  • persons in the Senior Citizen or Disability Program
  • students, who are temporarily living away from home, should submit a copy of their student ID or fee bill with the request
  • citizens who appear in the registrar of voters office before the election to verify identity
  • participants in the state's address confidentiality program

In Louisiana you must have a reason to be eligible to vote by mail, unless you are a military or overseas citizen. There are specific reasons to vote by mail.

Provisional Voting

A provisional voter must certify in writing on the ballot that he is a registered voter in the parish and is eligible to vote in the election for the federal office before voting.
