Voter registration deadlines

More by this author

The statewide voter registration deadline is Monday, April 5. If you are new to the community or recently moved or changed your name, Monday is your deadline to submit a voter registration form by mail or hand-delivery. Marion County voters can download a registration form at www.indy.gov/voter. Forms do require an original signature, so faxed or emailed applications cannot be accepted.

Early voting also begins in the Clerk’s office on Monday, April 5. Voters do not need a reason to vote early, but do need to provide a valid photo ID issued by the state of Indiana or federal government. The Marion County Clerk’s office is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday weekdays, until the week of April 26 when we extend our hours from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Our office will be open the two weekends before the election (April 24 & 25 and May 1& 2) from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Early voting ends Monday, May 3 promptly at noon.

Vote-by-mail absentee applications continue to be accepted. The statewide deadline to return an absentee ballot application is midnight, April 26. These forms can be faxed, emailed, mailed or hand-delivered to the Clerk’s office. Once the office receives an absentee ballot application, a ballot is mailed to the voter along with a postage paid return envelope. Vote-by-mail ballots are due on or before Election Day, Tuesday, May 4. Applications or ballots postmarked on the deadline dates and received after the deadline cannot be processed.

Pre-primary campaign finance reports are due by noon, Friday, April 16 for candidates and political action committees appearing on the ballot this May. The reporting period covers January 1 (or the date after 1/1 when they opened a committee) to April 9, 2010. I know many of you are interested in candidates running for office in 2011. They are not required to file a pre-primary report. In fact, their next report is due in January 2011 (assuming their committee remains open for all of 2010).
