Time's Running Out to Register For May 8 Primary

You still have time to register to vote in the May primary, but not much.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Time is running out for you to register for next month's primary!

To cast your ballot on Tuesday, May 8, you must be registered to vote by next Monday, April 9.

The Secretary of State's office is also encouraging already-registered voters to check their registration status and ensure that all of their voter information is correct.

You can register online or check your voter record at or by texting Indiana to 28683. If you wish to register to vote online, you must submit a valid driver's license or state ID number.

To vote in Indiana, you must have a valid state-issued ID or driver's license and also be:

  • A U.S. Citizen

  • 18 years old
    • 17-year-olds can register and vote in the primary if they will be 18 on or before the Nov. 6 general election

If you wish to register to vote but you do not have a  driver's license or state-issued ID, you can register to vote in person at county government centers and at your local BMV.
