Vote like your rights depend on it!
As we approach the November 6, midterm elections, we hope to empower every Hoosier to exercise their right to vote. To vote in Indiana, an individual must be a citizen of the U.S. who will be least 18 years of age at the time of the next general, municipal or special election. The voter must have resided in their precinct for 30 days prior to the next general, municipal or special election.
There are many misconceptions surrounding who can and cannot vote in the state of Indiana, leading to suppressed voter turnout for certain groups that do have the right to vote.
Yes! You can vote!
Indiana requires photo identification from voters.
Accepted photo identification is as follows:
State of Indiana identification with the voter’s name, photograph, and an expiration date that is current or expired after the most recent general election
U.S. government identification that meets the above criteria
Student ID from a public institution in Indiana that meets the above criteria
Military ID (need not include an expiration date)
Voters may also submit an application for a free photo ID at the Bureau of Motor Vehicles. The Secretary of State provides further information.
