Hi Louisiana, if you want to vote  in the 2022 midterm elections there   are three steps you need to take: register,  make your plan, and of course, vote.   Lets start with getting registered.

If you have an  Louisiana drivers license, you can register online   until October 18th. If not, you’ll need to print  out an application form and mail it in by October   11th.

Links to both the online and printable  registration forms are at   Then it’s time to make your plan  for how you’re going to vote.   If you’re going to be out of town, can’t get  to the polls because you’re ill or disabled,   or maybe you want to vote in Louisiana  but you go to college somewhere else,   then you can vote absentee. To do that, you need to fill out a   form to request your ballot from your Registrar of  Voter’s office by October 25th. But the sooner you   do it the better, so you have time for them  to get your application, mail you a ballot,   and for you to mail it back so that it gets  to them no later than November 8th.   Any Louisiana voter can vote early in  person though, from October 25th through   November 1st at an early voting location  in your parish.

You can find all those   locations and their hours at this link. Or you can vote on election day on November 8th.   You can look up where you’ll vote at that same  link, and polls are open from 6am to 8pm.   You’ll also need to bring a photo ID  with you. A Louisiana driver's license,   state ID, passport, or military ID all work,  but if you don’t have one of those, you can   get a free photo ID at an OMV office.

So once you have your plan for how you’re   going to vote, where you need to go, what time  you’re going to vote, and what ID you’re going   to bring. You just need to follow the plan,  and go vote on or before November 8th.   If you want to know ahead of time everything  that’s on your ballot, you can find a sample   ballot at so you  have time to research candidates and make your   decisions. You don’t have to vote for everything  for you ballot to count, but this is your best   chance to choose who gets to make decisions  about your life: all the way from Congress   to your city council or school board.

There are links for everything you need to   register, vote early, find your polling  place, and locate your sample ballot at Thank you for voting!
