ABSENTEE, MILITARY, & OVERSEAS VOTER REGISTRATION
Citizens outside of the state who are retaining their LA residence can register to vote via mail or online.
While military and overseas Louisiana residents may also register to vote online or by mail, you can also use the Federal Voting Assistance Program’s (FVAP) online assistant to fill out the Voter Registration and Absentee Ballot Request Federal Post Card Application Form (Form 76). The FPCA serves as both registration and a request for an absentee ballot.
