Hoosiers have until April 8th to register to vote in 2019 municipal elections

 2019 is a municipal election year in Indiana. Are you registered to vote? If you want to have your say in the primary election, you must register in the next few days.

 

Hoosiers must register by April 8th to be able to vote in the May 7th primary election. Most cities and towns in Indiana will cast votes for mayor, council, and city ballot questions.

 

Citizens can register to vote online by using the Indiana Voters app or by visiting IndianaVoters.com, and can submit an application to register in person at their local county clerk's office.

 

The Indiana Voters app also allows Hoosiers to confirm their voter registration, look up their polling place, get driving directions to their polling location, find out who's on their ballot, track their absentee ballot application or provisional ballot information and contact local election officials.

 

In order to be eligible to register to vote, you must:

• be a citizen of the United States,

• be at least 18 years old on the day of the next general, municipal, or special election,

• have lived in your precinct for at least 30 days before the next general, municipal, or special election (except for certain military voters); and

• not currently be imprisoned after being convicted of a crime.

 

“I encourage all Hoosiers to exercise their right to vote,” said Secretary Lawson. “Voting is one of our most precious rights as Americans – it’s how we make sure our voices are heard in government. Registering only takes a few minutes and can be done from your smartphone or computer.”

 

Voter registration will reopen after the May primary. Hoosiers wishing to take part in the November 5th general election must be registered by October 7th.
