Am I eligible to register to vote?

You are eligible to vote in Indiana if you:
  • Are a U.S citizen
  • Are a resident of Indiana
  • Are at least 18 years old by Election Day
  • Live in the precinct where you vote for at least 30 days prior to the election
You are NOT eligible to vote in Indiana if:
  • You are in prison or detention or jail or penal institution
You may preregister to vote in Indiana:
  • if you will be 18 by Election Day
Service members and their dependents may register and request a ballot using the federal voter registration/ballot request form ("FPCA"). You will have the following identification options when completing the form:
  • U.S. State or Territory or District Issued ID
  • Option to Indicate that you do not have the Requested ID
  • Last 4 Digits of your Social Security Number
U.S. citizens living abroad have the right to vote as absentee voters, provided they are eligible to vote in their state. If you are living outside of the U.S. permanently, indefinitely, or temporarily, your voting rights stay with you, even if you never voted when you lived in the U.S. To vote from overseas:
  • Complete and send an overseas voter registration/ballot request form to your election office in the U.S. This is one specific form that will register you as an overseas voter and request your absentee ballot – simultaneously.

Can I vote if I have a record?

Individuals currently incarcerated for a felony are ineligible to vote. Voting rights are automatically restored upon release from prison, and people on parole or probation can vote. Ex-offenders should re-register to vote.

I am a college student. Where do I register to vote?

Students who lived in Indiana but moved to another state for school, and who wish to establish or keep their Indiana voting residency (i.e., at their parents’ address), should have no problem doing so unless they have already registered to vote in another state. If you move to a college address in Indiana with the intention of making it your principal home and you do not intend to move back to the place you lived previously, you can establish voting residency in Indiana. Indiana law describes voting residence as your “true, fixed, and permanent home and principal establishment”; the place to where you intend to return after being away.=The Secretary of State has said that the “permanent residence” of students “who have no intention of returning to [the address that they traveled from to attend school]” will be “the community where they are attending school.” However, “there is no rule on legal residence that applies to all college students. Each case and each individual is different.” Residency equals domicile under Indiana law, and so each voter can have only one residence.

Will I need ID?

To register to vote in Indiana you should provide one of the following:
  • Your Indiana Driver's License Number
  • Your Indiana ID Number
  • The Last Four Digits of your Social Security Number
If you do not have these IDs, you may provide:
  • Government Issued Document that shows your current name and address
  • Utility Bill
  • Government Check
  • Bank Statement

If you are registering for the first time by mail you may need to provide proof of residence. Acceptable forms of proof of residence include:
  • Current and Valid Photo ID
  • Utility Bill, Bank Statement, Government Check, or Paycheck that Shows your current name and address
