Residents can obtain ballots by mail by calling the Registrar of Voters Office and making the request. Ballots should be returned to the office of the Registrar of Voters two to three days before the deadline to ensure receipt of your vote.
In addition to this week’s activities, residents can always register to vote online at www.geauxvote.com or visit the Registrar of Voters Office in the Percy Hebert Building on the East Bank or in the Edgard Courthouse on the West Bank.
