Be election ready

More by this author

Early voting started in my office this week, and we beat our record-breaking early voting totals from 2008. As a reminder, you can vote early in my office until Nov. 5. You don’t need a reason, but you will need your valid, government-issued photo ID.

You can find early voting information at indy.gov/election or call us at (317) 327-VOTE.

If you prefer to vote on Election Day, you need to be election ready. Perhaps the most important is to know where you go to vote. In late 2011, Mayor Greg Ballard changed most of the county’s precinct lines, which means many voters will be voting in new locations this election. Don’t assume you’ll be going to the same polling site in this election that you did in May or especially back in 2008. Take the initiative and confirm your voting location.

There are a couple of ways to find out where you go to vote. Marion County voters can go online at indy.gov/VIP and use our Voter Information Portal. You can also call us at 327-VOTE and speak to a staff person. Closer to the election we’ll also have an automated system you can access through 327-VOTE to find out this information 24/7.

Indiana’s voter ID law is still in effect, so you’ll need to bring the right kind of ID with you to vote on Election Day, which is Nov. 6. There’s a lot of ground to cover on this issue, and I’ll address that next week. Democracy is not a spectator sport! Make sure your voice is heard and vote.
