If you registered to vote in Louisiana for the first time, submitted your voter registration application by mail, and you didn’t provide your Louisiana driver’s license or special ID number, or the last 4 digits of your Social Security number when you registered to vote, you will need to bring a photo ID, utility bill, bank statement, or other government document that shows your name and address in order to cast a ballot.  (This is in addition to a photo ID containing your signature.)
