Secretary of State Announces "Voter Registration Week"
Work Your 'Personal Precinct'
Secretary of State Jay Dardenne has declared August 27 through August 31 as "Voter Registration Week." The purpose is to increase voter awareness of the upcoming elections and to encourage greater voter participation by all age groups.
Voters must be registered with their most current information by September 19th to be eligible to vote in the October 20th primary. Proper identification is required for registration; contact your Parish Registrar of Voters for forms and further information.
LFRW members, clubs, and supporters are urged to put forth a special effort for this initiative. Start by making sure everyone in your 'personal precinct' is ready to vote in October...is their registration is up-to-date?; do they know the location of their polling place?; have new residents/neighbors changed their registration?; do they need to take advantage of early/absentee voting (college students, football weekends)?
We have been talking for months now about the importance of these elections for the future of our state. Part of the LFRW mission is to inform and educate. Please promote this information through club e-mails, newsletters and your personal mailing lists. Be ready with early voting and absentee information as well.
Get everyone ready....make every vote count ...let's 'make a difference.'
