More by this author

Municipal Elections are around the corner. The Indianapolis Recorder has composed a cheat sheet for the elections this fall.

Important dates:

  • Mayoral and City-County Council elections: Nov. 7
  • Absentee ballot request deadline: Oct. 26
  • Absentee ballot return deadline: Nov. 7
  • Early voting begins Oct. 11 and ends Nov. 6

How to vote in Indiana:

To vote in the election, you must be registered to vote in Marion County, Indiana. You can register to vote online, by mail or in person. If you are registered to vote, you will receive a voter registration card in the mail. Your voter registration card will have your polling place location and hours.

Early voting will take place at the City-County Building in Indianapolis from Oct. 11 to Nov. 6. More early voting locations will be open from Oct. 28 to Nov. 5. A valid photo ID is required. You can find more information on early voting at vote.indy.gov/early-voting/.

On Election Day, Nov. 7, you can vote at your polling place between 6:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. To vote, you will need to show your voter registration card or another form of identification with your name and address.

If you are unable to vote in person on Election Day, you can request an absentee ballot. Absentee ballots can be requested online, by mail or in person. To request an absentee ballot, you must complete an absentee ballot application.

Absentee ballot applications can be found on the Marion County Election Board website.

Once you have received your absentee ballot, you can vote by mail or in person at the Marion County Election Board Office. If you are voting by mail, your absentee ballot must be postmarked by Election Day and received by the Marion County Election Board by Nov 23. If you are voting in person at the Marion County Election Board Office, you can do so during the early voting period or on Election Day.

Absentee ballot information:

To request an absentee ballot, you must complete an absentee ballot application. You can also drop off your absentee ballot application in person at the Marion County Election Board Office. Absentee ballot applications can be found on the Marion County Election Board website at www.indy.gov/agency/marion-county-election-board.
