ARE YOU ON THE INACTIVE VOTER LIST?

Make sure you’re still registered to vote! Check to see if you’re on the inactive list by going HERE. If your name appears on the list, your voter registration status is inactive because your registration address was not able to be verified by your parish registrar of voters. Those on the list have the opportunity to make sure they are properly registered to vote. To update the address on your voter registration record you can go to GeauxVote.com, or you may also change it by mail or in person at your parish registrar of voters. You can find out more information about the inactive voter list HERE.
