  • Do I need an ID?

    Yes, you really do. It's strict here, so you need to bring a current photo ID that was issued by Indiana or the U.S. government (like a passport). Learn all the details from VoteRiders.

SINCE YOU LAST VOTED…

Since 2020, there have been changes that will impact how you cast your ballot in Indiana. Here are the differences you should keep an eye on: 

When registering to vote…

  • If you’ve been incarcerated outside of the state of Indiana at any point, your voter registration was canceled, so you will need to reregister.

When making a plan to vote…

  • If you need a new absentee ballot at any point during the voting period, you can turn it in to get a new one.
  • You can no longer communicate with election officials via fax. (Hopefully this does not affect you.)

When casting your vote…

  • Federally recognized American Indian tribe IDs are now a valid form of voter ID.
  • The absentee ballot return deadline was Election Day at noon – it’s now been pushed back six hours to 6:00pm.
  • Family members can now return your ballot on your behalf, as long as they sign an affidavit affirming so.
  • There are now new accommodations for people with print disabilities (issues with visuals and reading).
