Secretary of State Connie Lawson reminds voters to request Absentee Ballot by April 30

For May primary

INDIANAPOLIS (April 23, 2018) — Indiana’s Primary Election is right around the corner. Tuesday, May 8th is Primary Election Day – polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. local time. If you cannot make it to the polls on Election Day, you can vote early in-person or absentee – but the deadline to request an absentee ballot is quickly approaching.

 

To cast an absentee ballot by mail in the 2018 Primary Election, you must request an application from the county clerk’s office by 11:59pm on Monday, April 30th. Applications may be submitted in person, by fax, email or by mail.

 

“Voting is a right that many have fought for; please don’t take it for granted,” said Secretary of State Connie Lawson. “If you are casting an absentee ballot this spring, I urge you not to delay and to request your ballot today. Waiting until the last moment increases the chance that your request will not be received in time. An absentee application only takes a few minutes to complete, so set aside that time today.”

 

Early voting in-person is ongoing. You can cast your ballot by going to your county clerk’s office. Some counties have additional early voting locations. To find out where you can vote, check online at IndianaVoters.com or download the Indiana Voters app on your smartphone or tablet.  Early voting in the clerk’s office ends Monday, May 7 at noon.
