Absentee Ballots

Louisiana offers absentee ballots by mail to voters who will be unable to vote in person. Absentee ballots should be requested as far in advance of the election as possible.

When your mail ballot arrives, read it carefully and follow the instructions to complete and return it. Please be aware of standard mail delivery times and the return ballot deadline when applying for a mail ballot to ensure your voted ballot is received by the registrar of voters before the deadline. 

Completed absentee ballots may only be hand delivered to City Hall or Algiers Courthouse. Hand delivery certification form must be completed if returning a ballot for someone other than yourself.

  • The deadline to request an absentee ballot is November 14, 2023 by 4:30 p.m
  • The deadline for a registrar of voters to receive a voted absentee ballot is November 17, 2023 by 4:30 p.m.

Have a question or concern regarding your ballot? Please contact our office at (504) 658-8300.
