Register to Vote Online

Register to vote online by visiting http://www.indianavoters.com/.  Indiana residents with a valid Indiana driver’s license or Indiana state-issued identification card will be able to use this tool to submit a new voter registration application or to update an existing voter registration record.

In addition to registering to vote online, http://www.indianavoters.com/ provides Hoosiers with the ability to validate their voter registration status, find their polling place location, look into their provisional ballot status information, find county contact information, and determine “Who’s on My Ballot?” for an upcoming election. 

Register to Vote by Mail or In-Person

To register to vote or update your current registration by mail or in person, you will need to complete and return the  Voter Registration Form (En Español) On or before May 4 before the 2020 Primary Election or on or before October 5 before the 2020 General Election.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: ONLY the version of the state voter registration form (VRG-7) and the county voter registration form (VRG-11) published on this website (or earlier revisions of these state forms approved since September 2013) will be accepted by county voter registration offices. Older versions of the VRG-7 or VRG-11 will NOT be accepted for processing. Federal voter registration forms may continue to be used.

Return the completed form to your county’s voter registration office or the Indiana Election Division according to the registration deadline requirements. You can also apply in person at the voter registration or county clerk’s office, and apply in person at any BMV license branch if you are conducting a “credential transaction” (such as obtaining a driver’s license, permit, or identification card). You can apply in person at a public assistance office if you are applying for service or assistance. You may also pick up a registration by mail form at a BMV license branch or public assistance office.

Once your voter registration application is received, your county voter registration office will process the application and determine your eligibility. If you are eligible, the county office will send you a voter registration acknowledgment card. Once you receive that card, you will be officially registered. If you are not eligible, or if the application was incomplete, you will receive a notice denying the application or requesting the missing information.

If you have not received a voter registration card or a notice from your county within about 30 days, call your county voter registration office. You can check your voter registration and polling location at anytime at http://www.indianavoters.com/ or by calling 1-866-IN-1-VOTE.

Federal Voter Registration form: The federal voter registration form is also a valid voter registration form for use in Indiana. See http://www.eac.gov/file.aspx?A=SuIrD0MEluWPb%2f1CsluBCtGblIGJJKOn%2f7Ygrw1dzZo%3d.
