People died so you’d have the right to vote. Self government, voting to choose our own leaders, is the original American dream. We are heir to a centuries-long struggle for freedom: the American revolution, and the battles to extend the franchise to those without property, to women, to people of color, and to young people. For those of us who have that right, it’s precious. If we waste it, we dishonor those who fought for it and those who fight still.
Go vote today, and make sure you take your friends and family with you.
This is the day when we have to commit to doing everything we can. We can’t afford not to — for our families, our communities, and our future.
Polls are open from 6 a.m. – 8 p.m.
Bring one of the following:
- Drivers Liscense
- Louisiana Special ID Card
- Generally recognized photo ID (passport, millitary ID, etc.)
(if you don’t have an ID you can still vote, but you will have to sign an affidavit and present a utility bill, payroll check or government document including your name and address.)Warning: apparel supporting a candidate may be prohibited in the polling place.
