Voter registration drive under way across New Orleans
20th August 2012 · 0 Comments
The New Orleans Public Library has teamed with the League of Women Voters to encourage voter registration by reserving a computer at each library branch dedicated to online voter registration which connects directly to the Secretary of State www.sos.la.gov. Instructions are posted with each computer and will lead the user step by step through the process. It is necessary to bring either a Louisiana ID or Louisiana driver’s license to complete the registration.
The following branches will provide this service through October 6. The deadline for registration to vote in the Nov. 6 presidential election is October 9. League members will be in the libraries on the last three Saturdays of September to assist those who need assistance with the registration process.
Residents can register to vote at the following locations:
Algiers Regional, 3014 Holiday Drive; Alvar, 913 Alvar; Central City – 2404 Jackson Ave., Bldg. C #235; Childrens Resource Center – 913 Napoleon Avenue; East New Orleans – 5641 Read Blvd.; Hubbell -725 Pelican Avenue (Algiers); Keller – 4300 South Broad Street; Latter – 5120 St. Charles Avenue; Main Library – 219 Loyola Avenue; Martin Luther King – 1611 Caffin Avenue; Mid City -3700 Orleans Avenue; Nix -1401 S. Carrollton Avenue; Noman Mayer -3001 Gentilly Avenue; Smith – 6301 Canal Blvd.
