(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles branches plan extended hours Monday and Tuesday to help people get the IDs they need to vote in the Nov. 2 election.
Indiana law requires a state-issued ID to cast a ballot.
A drivers license will do, but the BMV does offer free IDs for those who need them. Branches will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday and 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Election Day.
Hoosiers seeking information about their voter registration status, polling place, sample ballots and more can go to www.IndianaVoters.com.
Questions can also be answered by calling 866-IN-1-VOTE.
"It's important Hoosiers know what to bring with them on Election Day and are aware of the resources available to help them make an informed decision," said Indiana Secretary of State Todd Rokita, the state’s top election official.
"Resources like IndianaVoters.com, the Hoosier Voter Hotline and other materials are accessible to voters before and on Election Day if they need assistance before casting their ballots."
Early voting, or absentee ballots, can still be done up until Monday, Nov. 1 at noon at your local county clerk’s office. Dearborn County early voting is held at the Lawrenceburg Public Library.
As of Wednesday, more than 87,000 people across Indiana had cast an early ballot.
