Voter registration deadline fast approaching

Indiana Secretary of StateINDIANAPOLIS (March 29, 2016) – It’s a big election year. Are you registered to vote? If you want to have your say, you must register.

Register by April 4th to be able to vote in the May 3rd primary election.

Hoosiers can register to vote online by using the Indiana Voters app, or by visiting IndianaVoters.com, and can submit an application to register in person at their local county clerk’s office or any Bureau of Motor Vehicles license branch.

The Indiana Voters app also allows Hoosiers to confirm their voter registration, look up their polling place, get driving directions to their polling location, find out who’s on their ballot, track their absentee ballot application or provisional ballot information and contact local election officials.

 

In order to be eligible to register to vote, you must:

• be a citizen of the United States,

• be at least 18 years old on the day of the next general, municipal, or special election,

• have lived in your precinct for at least 30 days before the next general, municipal, or special election (except for certain military voters); and

• not currently be imprisoned after being convicted of a crime.

 

“I urge all Hoosiers to exercise their right to vote,” said Secretary Lawson. “It only takes a few minutes to register and can be done online at anytime.”

Hoosiers wishing to take part in the November 8th general election must be registered by October 11th.

 

Voters with questions can call the Hoosier Voter Hotline at 800-IN-1-VOTE.
