Annual Canvass

It's that time again when all parishes in the state are currently canvassing registered voters addresses to confirm whether or not they are correct.  If a person has entered a change through the post office and not our office, this might affect your voting in the GUBERNATORIAL Fall election.

Please update your voter registration resident address and or mailing address with your local Registrar of Voters Office.  The close of canvass is July 1st (estimated time)

Our goal is to create more opportunities for eligible citizens to register to vote and cast their ballots at a place and time that is convenient for them.

Any questions or concerns, call (337) 948-0572
