The 2022 General Election is Nov. 8 and we've gathered together the information you need before hitting the polls.

In-Person Voting

Polls are open from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. (local time) on Tuesday, May 2, 2023. You must have your photo ID.

Find Your Poling Location
Depending on where you live in Indiana, your polling place may have changed in the last few years. It’s important to check where you should go to vote.

To find your polling place, go to indianavoters.com and click “Voting Location.” You’ll need to enter your voter information – your name, birthday and county of residence.

Some Indiana counties use vote centers, meaning you can vote in any site in the county.

What if I do not have a valid ID?
If you do not have a valid ID, you can cast a provisional ballot by providing your Indiana driver's license, state identification number or the last four digits of your Social Security number. Once the information is reviewed and verified by the board of elections, your ballot will be counted.

You may need to cast a provisional ballot if your voter status is in flux. This could be because you recently moved and have not updated your voter information by the Oct. 5 deadline. For more information and scenarios which may require you to cast a provisional ballot, click here.

Can I take a selfie with my ballot?
Short answer: Yes.

If you want to document your voting experience you are allowed to take pictures at the polls. You can even take photos of your own ballot, as long as you are not capturing any other voter's information or votes.
