Indiana offers online voter registration through IndianaVoters.com, a comprehensive website where Hoosiers can not only register to vote, but can check their polling place, look at a mock ballot, and see early voting options for their county. This year, the Indiana Secretary of State’s office created the option of texting to register – a smartphone user can text the word ‘Indiana’ to 2VOTE (28683), and they will receive instructions on how to register from their phone. These tools make it quick and easy to register to vote and can save citizens a trip to the county clerk’s office.
Once registered, voters can also vote early the month leading up to Election Day. Early voting began April 10, and voters can visit their county clerk’s office to cast a ballot, or, request an absentee ballot if they cannot vote in-person on Election Day.
Take advantage of the options available to you, and, do your part to hold our government accountable. After all, it is a government of, for, and by the people, and things don’t work properly unless we are informed and engaged.
The 2018 Primary Election will be held on Tuesday, May 8th, 2018. Polls are open from 6:00am to 6:00pm. Voters can check their registration status, register to vote, view early voting options, and look up their polling place by visiting IndianaVoters.com.
