Early Voting Is Underway For The Indiana Primary

Early voting is now open to Hoosiers for the primary election. Early in-person voting continues through May 2nd at noon.

Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson says casting your ballot to avoid the rush is easy.

“Registered voters can go to their county clerk’s office with a valid, government-issued photo ID to vote early,” Secretary Lawson says. “Voters do not need a reason to vote early, simply show up and cast your ballot.”

Almost 30 counties in Indiana have now adopted the vote center model. Many of these counties have alternative early voting locations. Hoosiers who live in a vote center county should check with their county clerk for additional early voting options.

Before heading to the polls, Hoosier voters can go to or use the Indiana Voters app on their smart phone to look up which candidates will be on their ballot. Voters enter their county of residence, name and date of birth. ‘Who’s On Your Ballot?’ will list the offices, candidates’ names and party just as it will be listed on Election Day.

Registered voters can also start voting absentee by mail today.

Voter registration is now closed for the May 3rd primary, but you can still get registered for the November 8th general election at or by using the Indiana Voters app.

Polls are open 6am-6pm local time on May 3rd for the primary election.

Voters with questions can call the Hoosier Voter Hotline at 866-IN-1-VOTE.
