Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin is joining registrars of voters across the state the week of August 23-27 to host Voter Registration Week activities aimed at registering Louisiana citizens to vote.
This year, the Terrebonne Registrar of Voter Office will hold voter registration events on the following dates:
- Monday, August 23 from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Houma Main Library, 151 Library Dr., Houma
- Tuesday, August 24 from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the North Branch Library, 4130 West Park Avenue, Gray
- Wednesday, August 25 from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the East Houma Library, 778 Grand Caillou Road, Houma
Citizens with a valid Louisiana driver’s license or Louisiana Special ID card can register online 24 hours a day, seven days a week from any location by visiting voterportal.sos.la.gov. Louisiana residents can also register in person at their parish Registrar of Voters Office when they apply for or renew their driver’s license at any Office of Motor Vehicles or when obtaining services at public assistance agencies and Armed Forces recruitment offices. Citizens wishing to register by mail can download and print the application from geauxvote.com or complete an application found at public libraries or through registration drives.
“The first step to participating in the electoral process is registering to vote,” said Secretary Ardoin, “This fall, Louisianans will choose statewide leaders as well as vote for a host of local and municipal races, constitutional amendments, and propositions. Make sure you get registered so you can Geaux Vote on Election Day!”
