BE AN EDUCATED VOTER

The simple task of casting your vote has far more impact and power than we think. Your vote determines not only who represents our communities, but what policies are put into place, which community issues become priorities, and where dollars are spent. Elections are our chance to have impact on the future of our communities, families, and our future.

AM I REGISTERED TO VOTE?

It's always a good idea to check your voter registration status before each election. It is especially important if you recently moved or changed your legal name. This information needs to be updated before you can vote. If you need to register for the first time, or re-register, you can easily do so by visiting Indiana Voters. Just remember voter registration closes one month before each election. In 2020, you can register to vote January 1 - May 4 and June 16 - October 5.

YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO VOTE!

In Indiana, all U.S. citizens who are 18 years old on or before Election Day, and who are not currently in prison after being convicted of a crime, are eligible to vote.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE POLLS

Voting at your polling location is easy! It is important to know what you should be expecting when you enter your polling location, along with what accommodations can be made.
