Can I vote by mail in the state of Louisiana?

Yes. Any registered voter can vote via mail-in absentee ballot in the state of Louisiana, if he or she meets certain eligibility requirements. You can vote by mail if you are a member of the military, or the spouse or dependent of a member of the military. You are also eligible for mail-in absentee voting if you are a student, instructor, or professor who is residing outside of your parish, or a family member of such a person. Other persons eligible for voting by mail in Louisiana are those who will be outside their parish on the date of the election, as well as during the early voting period, those who have moved more than 100 miles from their original parish within thirty (30) days of the election, those who are confined in a mental institution, but who have not been adjudged to be incompetent, and those who are living in another country. You may also qualify to vote by mail if you expect to be hospitalized on the date of the election and/or during the early voting period, if you are working offshore during the election and early voting period, if you are approved for the Special Handicap Program, but are residing at home, if you are incarcerated for reasons other than a felony conviction, if you are the age of sixty-five (65) or older, or if you have a mobility impaired identification card issued by the office of motor vehicles.
