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) 29 days prior to a Primary or General Election (on or before October 6, 2014 for the November General Election).
IMPORTANT NOTICE: As of January 1, 2014, ONLY the version of the state voter registration form (VRG-7) and the county voter registration form (VRG-11) published on this website will be accepted by county voter registration offices. Older versions of the VRG-7 or VRG-11 will NOT be accepted for processing. The federal voter registration form referenced below 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, any 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.
