SINCE YOU LAST VOTED…
Since 2020, it’s gotten easier to cast your ballot in Louisiana. Here are the changes you need to pay attention to:
When registering to vote…
- High school students 17 and older will now be able to register through their high schools (public and charter).
When making a plan to vote…
- Parishes now have more leeway to open early voting locations, so hopefully it’ll be easier for you to cast your vote.
- Early voting starts four days earlier than it used to, now beginning eighteen days before Election Day and ending one week before.
Vote Save the Senate Fund
If we can win 52 Senate seats in 2022, Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema’s refusal to change the filibuster won’t matter. We can elect a Democratic majority that takes decisive action on raising the minimum wage, forgiving student debt, fighting climate change, protecting reproductive freedom, and more. We need to protect the four most vulnerable Democratic incumbents in purple states and support challengers in winnable states. You can start today by donating here to directly support eight of the most competitive Senate races of 2022.
