Today, September 22, 2015, is National Voter Registration Day, and tomorrow, September 23, 2015 is the official deadline to register in time to vote in the 2015 Louisiana gubernatorial primary on Saturday, October 24. If you’ve recently moved or turned 18, or if you will turn 18 by October 24, today is the perfect day to take 2 minutes and register to vote.
It’s never been more important to vote in Louisiana. Many of the communities we stand beside continue to be harmed by policies and laws that criminalize entire families, create barriers to healthcare and social services, and deny our right to bodily autonomy.
Today and tomorrow thousands of organizations and individuals will register tens of thousands of voters, and you can play a role. Whether it’s sharing a post on Facebook or setting up a voter registration table in your own community, we challenge each and every one of you to celebrate National Voter Registration Day by making sure your friends and family are registered to vote!
You can easily register online! All you need is a valid Louisiana driver’s license number or Louisiana special ID card and a residence address in Louisiana. If you don’t have a valid drivers license or special ID card, you can still register to vote by printing the online form and mailing it into your local Registrar of Voters office along with documentation verifying your identity. A list of acceptable documents is available at geauxvote.com.
You can also visit geauxvote.com to register right now! Or stop by WWAV’s office today or tomorrow to register in person!
If you’ve already registered to vote, you should check your voter registration to be sure it’s still valid and correct.
