Electronic/Voting in Nursing Facilities

Secretary of State, July 18, 2014
Nursing facility voting runs the week before early voting through the last day of early voting (it begins 21 days prior to the election and ends the seventh day prior to the election). See La. R.S. 18:1333 (B).

La. R.S. 18:1334 prohibits electioneering in nursing facilities during the period extending from seven days prior to the state of nursing facility voting conducted pursuant to 18:1333 through the close of polls on election day. So nursing facility electioneering is prohibited during the 28 days before an election.

Refer to the following for the state law RS 18:1333 and RS 18:1334.
