Honor vets when you vote
With early voting already in full-swing and the Nov. 6 elections just around the corner, and the state is now offering a way to honor local veterans when you cast your vote on Election Day.
The Honor Vets. Vote. program honors those who have fought and sacrificed for our freedom and our sacred right to vote. Any Louisiana voter can dedicate their vote by honoring those who have fought and are still out fighting for our freedom today.
The Louisiana Secretary of State’s (SOS) Office started the program as a way to recognize the service of our brave veterans and provide encouragement to our citizens to vote.
“This year, don’t find a reason not to vote – like you are going hunting or there’s a football game, or whatever the excuse may be,” Schedler said. “Honor Vets. Vote. gives you a reason to get up, get out, cast a ballot and honor a vet who has honorably defended your right to do so.”
Voters can complete a form with the veteran’s information. You will be mailed a printable certificate, bumper sticker and/or lapel pin.
After receiving your sticker and/or pin, you can show your appreciation for our servicemen and women by displaying the sticker and wearing the pin.
Voters may dedicate their vote to more than one veteran, but bumper stickers and lapel pins will only be issued once per voter. All information except the address will be posted on the Honor Vets. Vote. dedication page of this website.
The Secretary of State’s Office reserves the right to edit any submission and/or remove any inappropriate content.
You can search by the veteran’s last name or by the voter’s last name. By default, results are sorted alphabetically by the veteran’s last name and are displayed in ascending order.
So make your vote count for even more than just your decision on the current ballot issues. Honor a veteran today.
To honor a veteran through the program, voters should visit the SOS’s website at http://www.sos.la.gov/tabid/1183/Default.aspx. You may also call the SOS office at (225) 342.4479 to participate in this program. The forms for the Honor Vets. Vote program are also available at the Jeff Davis Registrar of Voters Office located at 302 North Cutting Avenue in Jennings.
