This is Voter Registration Week in Louisiana, and Secretary of State Tom Schedler, along with registrars of voters, will be encouraging Louisianans to register. Anyone with a valid Louisiana driver's license can register online (voterportal.sos.la.gov), at a parish Registrar of Voters office or while conducting business at an Office of Motor Vehicles. Paper applications can be found at most public libraries.
"While this year is a slow election cycle for many communities," Schedler said in a statement, "Louisiana will be electing a state treasurer this fall as well as hosting many local elections, propositions and constitutional amendments on the ballot." The Oct. 14 primary will include the New Orleans mayoral and City Council races, as well as several judgeships.
