Last day for voter registration; officials test brand new voting equipment

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- If you want to vote in the election next month, Tuesday is your last day to get registered.

You can either walk into your county office in person by 5 p.m. or register online here by midnight.

If you don’t have a drivers license, you can get a State ID at the BMV. Officials are expecting more people to do that today, especially since they’re expecting a strong voter turnout this election.

"We expect the turnout to be very similar to what it was in 2008 and the voter turnout in 2008 was a historic one," said Russell Hollis, Deputy Director of the Marion County Clerk’s Office.

On Wednesday, early voting opens-up. In Marion County, voters can visit the County Clerk’s office from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the week, or from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the weekends.

Marion County Election Board officials are getting ready for voters. On Tuesday they tested brand new equipment at their command center on East Washington Street, including a new precinct scanner, tabulator and touch screen voting machines.
