Early Voting Begins in Indiana

Wednesday, April 10th, 2019 5:56am

By  Indiana Secretary of State

May 7th Primary

 Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson is reminding Hoosiers that early and absentee voting for the May 7th Primary Election began yesterday. From now until May 6, any eligible voter can cast an absentee ballot in-person at their county clerk’s office or request an absentee ballot by mail.

 

Voters who chose to vote absentee in-person have until noon on May 6, the day before the primary election, to cast their ballot. Voters who choose to vote by mail may request an absentee ballot online at www.indianavoters.com or from their county clerk’s office. Request for absentee ballots by mail must be delivered by April 29.

 

“Early voting and absentee voting give Hoosiers more options when casting their ballots and many take advantage of the opportunity,” said Secretary Lawson. “In the 2018 primary, we saw 861,767 Hoosiers vote early, and it is clear citizens value that flexibility.”

 

Military families are encouraged to remind those serving overseas to request an absentee ballot in advance of the deadline.

 

Almost half of Indiana counties now offer vote centers, which allow voters to cast a ballot early or at one of the multiple locations available on Election Day. Hoosier voters can go towww.indianavoters.com to view a sample ballot and check their voting locations.

 

“I encourage Hoosier voters to visit IndianaVoters.com to educate themselves on who they’ll be voting for and where they’ll be voting,” said Secretary Lawson. “Municipal elections like this one cannot be overlooked. Local officeholders have an enormous impact on our everyday lives, and the act of voting is a vital component of keeping local government accountable.”

 

Hoosiers who are not sure if they are registered can confirm their registration online at www.indianavoters.com. Voters may also request an absentee ballot and verify their polling location on the website.
