Hoosiers must register to vote by Monday to participate in 2018 primary
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Monday, April 9 is the last day to register to vote for Indiana’s 2018 primary.
There are a couple ways Hoosiers can register to vote, but the easiest way is by going to IndianaVoters.in.gov. You’ll just need a valid Indiana driver’s license or a state-issued identification card. The website also allows users to check their voting status and find their polling place.
If you want to do things old school, you can also register by mail. If that’s the path you take, you’ll need to complete and return a form to your county’s voter registration office or the Indiana Election Division on or before Monday.
You can also apply in person at your county clerk’s office or at any BMV license branch if you are conducting a “credential transaction” (such as obtaining a driver’s license, permit, or identification card).
To be eligible to vote in the Hoosier State, you must meet the following requirements:
- You are both a U.S. citizen and a resident of Indiana
- You will be at least 18 years of age on or before the election
- You are not currently in prison after being convicted of a crime
- You have lived in the precinct where you vote for at least 30 days prior to the election
Polls open on May 8.
