New Orleans residents who are registered voters and were displaced by the hurricane are still eligible to vote in their home parish if they have not registered to vote anywhere else. We need to reach as many of these voters as soon as possible to make sure they can vote in the elections April 22.
If you are an eligible New Orleans voter or know someone who is, you can request an absentee ballot up until April 18 to vote in the primary election. You also can call the Louisiana Secretary of State Elections Division at 1-800-883-2805 or visit its website for more information about voting.
Please help us spread the word by forwarding this e-mail to your friends and family. If you know people displaced by Katrina, please let them know they have time to vote in their local election.
We cannot allow those who would erode our rights to get a foot in the door. All of us who care about preserving and protecting the hard-won right to vote have a stake in making sure New Orleans residents can vote April 22.
Please forward this e-mail to friends and family, and let those displaced by the hurricane know they are eligible to vote in the April 22 primary election. They can get more information about voting by calling the Louisiana Secretary of State Elections Division at 1-800-883-2805 or visiting its website.
