Since November 2012, 23 precincts have undergone name changes and 46 precincts have changed locations. Voters should call (317) 327-VOTE or visit the Voter Information Portal at indy.gov/VIP to verify their voting location. The Voter Information Portal can also be used to check voter registration status, voting district and current elected officials. Voters can also look at a sample ballot.
