How to Vote

The deadline to register to vote in this November’s election is  October 11, 2022.



Apply for the address confidentiality program to register to vote with a confidential address. You can vote absentee. To vote in Indiana, there are ID requirements. You need an ID that meets the following criteria:

  • Displays your photo.
  • Displays your name, which must conform to your voter registration record.
  • Displays an expiration date and is either current or has expired sometime after the date of the last General Election (November 3, 2020).
  • Be issued by the state of Indiana or the U.S. government. In most cases, an Indiana drivers license, Indiana photo ID card, Military ID, or U.S. Passport is sufficient.


With both misdemeanor and felony convictions, you lose your right to vote while incarcerated but you can vote again once you are released and have completed your sentence. You can also vote if you are on parole or probation. Learn more here.


Register with the address of the shelter you are staying at, or the street corner or other area where you primarily sleep. You will need to list an address where you can receive your mail. Draw a map on the voter registration application indicating where you live (where you usually spend the night) and list a mailing address within your county that can be used to mail your notification that you are registered. You must have 30 days of residency in state, and must have a state or federal ID. Learn more here.
