Absentee Ballot Voting Available For Tuesday Primary

May 1, 2014
By

The Primary Election is less than a week away. State officials are encouraging Hoosiers to vote even if they cannot make it to their polling location on Tuesday.

Those that cannot cast a ballot on May 6 are encouraged to vote at their county clerk’s office until noon on Monday, May 5.

Hoosier voters can go to www.indianavoters.com to look up which candidates will be on their ballot. Voters enter their county of residence, name and date of birth. ‘Who’s On Your Ballot?’ will list the offices, candidates’ names and party just as it will be listed on Election Day.

“I encourage all Hoosier voters to visit IndianaVoters.com to educate themselves on who they’ll be voting for and where they’ll be voting,” said Secretary of State Connie Lawson. “An informed electorate is the key to a successful democracy so I encourage all voters to take advantage of this tool.”

The website also offers an opportunity to view where your polling location is located.

Hoosiers may also call the toll free Hoosier Voter Hotline at 866-IN-1-VOTE to speak directly to a representative for information, polling locations and to file grievances. Staff will be on hand to answer calls from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. EDT on Election Day and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. EDT on normal business days. Voters who wish to report an issue on Election Day should call this number to report the problem.

Voters may also visit the Election Division’s website  for information to additional questions, including information regarding Indiana’s photo ID law. Indiana’s photo ID law requires every voter to present a government issued ID before casting their vote at the polls. Earlier this year, the General Assembly added veterans IDs that do not include an expiration date to the list of acceptable IDs for voting purpose
