INDIANA – Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson is reminding Hoosiers that Monday, April 7 is the deadline to register to vote in the May 6 Primary Election.

“Hoosiers who fail to register will not be able to vote on May 6,” Lawson said. “The voter registration deadline is right around the corner. I encourage everyone who is not registered to register today to make your vote count.”

Lawson also reminds young Hoosiers who will turn 18 before the General Election that they may register to vote and vote in the Primary Election.Voters who choose to mail their registration must have a postmarked date of April 7 or before.

Registrations postmarked after this date will not be accepted.

Military families are encouraged to remind those serving overseas to register and request an absentee ballot. Active duty military members and their spouses should register to vote and apply for an absentee ballot by completing the Federal Post Card Application to ensure they receive their absentee ballot on time.

The application can be completed online here.

“Many military members are serving far away from home on Election Day,” said Lawson. “We are calling on those here at home to remind their loved ones serving overseas to register to vote and to apply for an absentee ballot.”

Hoosiers who are not sure if they are registered can confirm their registration online at www.indianavoters.com. Voters may also request an absentee ballot and verify their polling location on www.indianavoters.com

Voters may also visit their local county clerk’s office or any branch of the Bureau of Motor Vehicles to register to vote.
