Indiana residents have until Oct. 9 to register to vote

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — The deadline to register to vote in the Nov. 6 general election is one week away on Oct. 9.

The Secretary of State’s Office says Indiana residents can register to vote online by texting “Indiana” to 2VOTE (28683) or at . They also can submit an application to register in person at their local county clerk’s office.

To be eligible to register to vote, residents must be a U.S. citizen, at least 18 years old by Election Day, reside in their precinct for at least 30 days before the election; and not currently imprisoned after being convicted of a crime.

The Indiana Voters app allows Hoosiers to confirm their voter registration, look up their polling place, get driving directions there, and learn who’s on their ballot.
