The completion of one class is required to certify as a commissioner for the new term which will begin July 1, 2016.

This course is open to anyone who wishes to re-certify or become a commissioner. In order to qualify as a commissioner, you must be present for an entire class and must pass a written test.
Candidates for commissioner are strongly encouraged to watch the 2 part video entitled “Election Day Training video” found on the Louisiana Secretary of State’s website. The web address is as follows:

You may also type “geauxvote” on your web browser and follow the links to election commissioner training. This video provides information which will help candidates better understand the Election Day process and assist candidates with the required written test administered at the end of the class. If you do not have a home computer, you may find one at your local branch library where you may watch the video and obtain assistance from the library personnel.
