Hoosiers Vote Hotline Success Story

The day before the 2016 General Election, a gentleman called our Hoosiers Vote hotline concerned about his and his wife’s inability to stand in line for long periods of time.  Indiana Disability Rights staff advised him to call the Marion County Election Board to let them know that he and his wife have a disability and cannot stand in line.  He was also advised that he had the right to request chairs be provided for them while waiting and to be able to wait inside if the path to the poll was slippery from rain so they do not risk falling.  IDR staff called the couple after Election Day to see if their voting experience had gone well.  The couple reported that they called the Election Board as directed and, based on the advice we provided, the couple was able to use chairs not only in line, but also while casting their ballots.  The couple praised our staff for the great advice and friendly service and were pleased that they were able to participate in the Election without any issues.

 

Election Day is Tuesday, November 6, 2018.  Polls will be open from 6 am to 6 pm, local time.  A valid photo ID is required to vote in-person: early and/or on Election Day. Click here to see examples of acceptable photo IDs.
