Hoosiers have until Oct. 9 to register to vote this fall

Tuesday, September 25, 2018

INDIANAPOLIS – If you want to have your say in the upcoming Nov. 6 General Election, you must be registered to vote by Oct. 9.

Citizens can register to vote by texting “Indiana” to 2VOTE (28683) or by visiting IndianaVoters.com, and can submit an application to register in person at their local county clerk’s office.

Indianavoters.com also allows Hoosiers to confirm their voter registration, look up their polling place, get driving directions to their polling location, find out who is 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, persons must:

• Be a citizen of the United States.

• Be at least 18 years old by Election Day.

• Have lived in their precinct for at least 30 days before the election.

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

“I encourage all Hoosiers to make it to the polls this November,” Secretary of State Connie Lawson said. “Voting is a precious right for Americans – it’s how you can ensure your voice is heard in government. Registering only takes a few minutes and can be done online at any time.”

Voters with questions can call the Hoosier Voter Hotline at 866-IN-1-VOTE.
