In order to be eligible to vote per Indiana Code 3-7-26.7 in the next election, a voter registration application must be submitted with an application submission date of no later than 29 days before the next election. The next deadline for registration is 11:59 p.m. (local prevailing time), Monday, April 9, 2018.
If you submit your voter registration application after the deadline, you will be unable to vote in the next election unless you were previously registered in Indiana. If you were previously registered in Indiana, and have changed your name or address, you may be able to vote in the next election. Please contact your county voter registration office for more detailed information about the law concerning name or address changes that would apply in your case. If you missed the deadline, your registration application (and any name or address change update) will be processed when registration reopens for the next election.
Some military voters and their family members can register until noon on election day. Contact your county voter registration office for information if you may qualify to do so.
For those voters who have a nontraditional residence (those who are currently homeless, mobile or live at a place where the post office does not deliver mail), list the closest intersection to where you live in the box to the left marked "Residence Address", then list the address of a friend or shelter, within your county of residence, who is willing to receive mail for you in the box marked "Mailing Address".
