INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (April 4, 2016) – Indiana voters must register by Monday April 4 to vote in the Primary Election on May 3.

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

"When people download the app they're amazed by how quick and easy it is to register to vote. Your personal information, for most people it's information they know. They grab their driver's license, they punch in their driver's license number. Other than that it's all information they know off the top of their head," said Valerie Warycha, communications director for the Indiana Secretary of State's Office.

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)
  • Not currently be imprisoned after being convicted of a crime

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