Geaux Vote with

It’s that time of year again: voting season.   If you’re trying to find out where to vote, what’s on the ballot, or even whether you are registered to vote,  the state of Louisiana has a new website designed to help, called  

To find your voting information on, click the “Are You a Voter” link in the middle of the home page.   

This will bring you to a page offering several links with useful election information.  To find personal or local voting information, click “Am I a Voter?”  

Click “By Voter” from the choices on the right, and then enter your first name, last name and either your birth month plus year or your zip code.   

You should now see a page that displays your name, political party, voting parish, ward, precinct and voting status.

To view a sample election ballot, click the Ballot Information tab located on the same page just above your voter information.  Click “What’s on My Ballot” on the next page, and a sample ballot should soon load. 

Geaux Vote is also offered as a mobile application for both Apple and Android smart phones.

Additionally, a guide to the proposed state constitutional amendments on this year’s ballot can be found here, courtesy of the Public Affairs Research Council of Louisiana. 

If you need additional help finding your voter information, stop by the Main Library across from the Civic Center or call the Reference Department at 876-5861, option 2.

Geaux Vote!
