Voter registration deadline drawing near


The deadline to register to vote in the Nov. 8 election is Oct. 11.

Indiana makes it easy for new voters to register for the first time or for existing voters to update their information, according to a news release from Secretary of State Holli Sullivan.

“Government works best when its citizens are active and engaged,” she said. “I encourage all Hoosiers to use this day to make sure they are registered and that their voter information is up to date. Registering only takes a few minutes and can be done online at any time.”

Hoosiers may register to vote by visiting or submitting an application to register in person at their county clerk’s office. also allows Hoosiers to confirm their voter registration, look up their polling place, get driving directions to their polling location, find out who’s on their ballot, track their absentee ballot application and contact local election officials.

To be eligible to register to vote, you must be a citizen of the United States and at least 18 years old by Election Day; have lived in your precinct for at least 30 days before the election; and not currently be imprisoned after being convicted of a crime.

As of this month, there are 4.7 million registered voters in Indiana.
