You can request an absentee ballot by mail, fax, or electronically using the FVAP online wizard at: www.fvap.gov or by logging in to the Louisiana Voter Portal found on the Louisiana Secretary of State website: http://www.sos.la.gov/tabid/618/Default.aspx.
The deadline to request an absentee ballot is 4:30 p.m. (CST) Friday, December 7, 2012. The deadline for returning voted ballots is 8 p.m. (CST) December 8, 2012.
If you have already requested but have not received a State ballot for the December 8th Runoff Election, go to www.fvap.gov and use the back-up, Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot (FWAB). If you receive your State ballot after submitting the FWAB, vote and return the State ballot as well. You will only receive one vote as the State will only count your FWAB if the State ballot is not received by the deadline. If your State ballot is received by the deadline your State ballot will be counted and the FWAB will be disregarded.
