The 1998 reauthorization of the Higher Education Act requires all
postsecondary institutions to make a good-faith effort to distribute voter
registration forms to each degree- or certificate-seeking student who
attends classes on their campus. At LSU Health Sciences Center, these forms
are provided by the state and are available in the Office of the Registrar,
Resource Center Building room 154.
Louisiana residents can download the
Louisiana Voter Registration Application from the
Secretary of State’s office and return the completed form to their local
Registrar of Voters office. Louisiana
statutes require individuals to be registered 30 days prior to an election to
be eligible to vote in that particular election.
Students residing outside of Louisiana who wish to register to vote in their
home state may do so by completing the
Voter Registration Form provided by the United States Election
Assistance Commission. Most states require that you register in advance
of the election by as much as thirty five days and some states do not accept the National Voter Registration form.
Voter registration information and links to online voter registration forms
are sent to all LSUHSC students, via email, as required by this act.
