Voting is done in a public location such as a school or courthouse. It generally doesn't take long, but that can depend on location, time, and the amount of selections on the ballot. Voting locations always have volunteers that can assist you in voting if it's your first time.
You can participate in early voting at your leisure if you want to skip the lines or will be unable to vote on the designated day.

Find out if you are a Louisiana voter, where you vote, what's on your ballot and other summarized voter registration and elections information using this secure application. Searching by voter yields the most specific information; searching by address provides information about all voters at an address.
The information contained in this application is encrypted. Information considered private (social security number, e-mail address, full date of birth, mother's maiden name and entitlement to assistance in voting) is not available through the application. A voter record is not linked to an address record and the address records are not linked to voters in order to further protect information about registrants.
