If you were not issued a social security number or a LA DL or ID and this form is submitted by mail, and you are registering to vote for the first time, in order to avoid additional identification requirements for first time voters you must attach one or more documents to prove your identity, residence, and date of birth. Documents may be: a) a copy of current and valid photo identification and/or b) a copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government documents. Your SSN remains confidential and is only used for registration purposes

7. Voting Without Address

The Louisiana voter registration form requests a residential address but does allow a voter to "give location" on a map if necessary. "If you use a rural route and box number, you may draw a map in box labeled “Give Location” to provide the exact location. Write in the names of the crossroads (streets) nearest to residence. Draw an X to show residence. Use a dot to show any schools, churches, stores, or landmarks near residence and write the name of the landmark"

8. Interesting Notes


California's confidential address program is called Safe at Home. In addition to survivors of DV, it is open to reproductive health care workers.
