Before You Vote…
Bring a photo ID
A valid photo ID is required to vote in Louisiana. An affidavit is available if you do not have an approved form of photo ID. Valid forms of ID include:
- Valid Louisiana Driver’s License
- A Louisiana special identification card or other generally recognized picture identification card that contains the name and signature of the applicant
If you are having problems getting an approved form of voter ID, you can contact Spread the Vote for assistance at www.spreadthevote.org.
All eligible voters in line at their polling place before 8:00PM will be allowed to vote, regardless of the length of the line.
Louisiana permits voters without ID to sign a personal identification affidavit instead of presenting ID, cast a provisional ballot which will be counted if the signature matches the registration database, and/or otherwise authorize alternative verification of the voter’s identity.
