BMV Extends Business Hours For Election

November 4 and 5 will have extended hours to issue state identification cards and driver's licenses.

(Indianapolis, Ind.) - The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) has announced their extended Election Day hours. 

On Monday and Tuesday, November 4 and 5, the BMV will be keeping their doors open longer for those participating in voting. This will allow ID cards and driver’s licenses to be issue to be used for identification at polling places.

Monday, November 4, BMV hours will be extended to 8:30 AM - 8 PM. 

Tuesday, November 5, BMV hours will be extended to 6 AM - 6 PM. 

Even though the hours will be extended, they will only process new, amended, or replacement ID cards, and renewed, amended, or replacement driver’s licenses and learner permits. 

New driver’s licenses and learner permits will only be processed if the customer has already completed the required testing prior to the visit. However, if you still need to take any testing to receive a drivers license, you may apply for a free ID card used for voting purposes. 

If you have a driver’s license or ID card that expired after the last general election, you can use that expired card for identification for voting purposes. You may also use a paper interim credential issued at the license branch at the time of transaction or a completed internet credential transaction as an acceptable proof of identification. 

A complete list of documents required to obtain a new state ID card or driver's license can be found at

Normal business hours will resume Wednesday, November 6.
