In advance of the upcoming November federal election, Louisiana Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin would like to inform Louisiana citizens that the Secretary of State’s office, Registrar of Voters offices, nor Clerks of Court offices conduct a door-to-door canvass to update or confirm a voter’s registration.

Although independent third party groups conduct their own door-to-door surveys, registration or petition drives, Louisiana residents are under no obligation to speak to or answer these groups’ questions. Cooperation or refusal to cooperate will have no bearing on a voter’s registration status.

The Secretary of State’s office, in conjunction with local election officials, conducts an annual voter canvass via mail only.

Voters are encouraged to check their registration status, or to make updates to their registration, by visiting online at or downloading the award-winning, free Geaux Vote mobile app.
