How can I register to vote?

You can check your registration status online here. If you are not registered to vote, you can register online at the same website or by mail or in person.

To register to vote by mail, complete and return the voter registration form by October 11. The completed form can be mailed to your county’s voter registration office or to the Indiana Electoral Division, 302 W. Washington St., Room E204. The Marion County Voter Registration Office is located in the City County Council Building, 200 E. Washington St.

You can also apply in person at your local county clerk’s office or at any BMV licensing branch during an “identification transaction” such as obtaining or renewing a driver’s license, license or identity card. You can also go in person to a public assistance office if you are asking for a service or help.

Once your application is received, your county voter registration office will process it and determine your eligibility. Eligible voters will receive a voter registration acknowledgment card and are now ready to go to the polls.

If you do not receive a voter registration card or notice within 30 days, you can call the Marion County Board of Votes Registration at 317-327-5042.
