Secretary of State Tom Schedler is reminding Louisianians that the deadline to register to vote in the Oct. 24 gubernatorial primary is Wednesday, Sept. 23.
The deadline is for citizens who have never registered to vote as well as voters who would like to make changes to their registration.
“Campaign season is kicking into high gear across Louisiana, and I am encouraging citizens to get engaged in this year’s important elections,” Secretary of State Tom Schedler said. “There are more than 600 races statewide, ranging from governor to city council, up for grabs in October. The only way for your voice to be heard is to register and vote. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to participate in democracy.”
Citizens can register to vote online at www.GeauxVote.com; at Webster Parish Registrar of Voters Office in the Webster Parish Courthouse; while obtaining services at the Office of Motor Vehicles, public assistance agencies, public schools, colleges and libraries; or by mail.
Louisianians can also utilize our smartphone app, GeauxVote Mobile, to access registration, ballot and polling place information.
After registering, voters should download the GeauxVote Mobile smartphone app. The app provides registration information as well as voting districts, sample ballots, polling place information and election results.
Early voting for the gubernatorial primary election is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 10 through Saturday, Oct. 17, excluding Sunday.
