Get Ready to Vote with GeauxVote.com

The 2012 election is coming up soon, and the deadline to register to vote is October 9.  If you’re trying to find out where to vote, what’s on the ballot, or whether you are registered to vote, the state of Louisiana has a website designed to help called geauxvote.com.  

To find your voting information on geauxvote.com, 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.

Remember, you must be registered by October 9 in order to vote in this year’s election. 

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.
