Knowing your rights at the polls is one of the most important steps you can take to prepare to vote on Election Day. 

The Indiana Secretary of State's Office has produced a document called the Voter's Bill of Rights, which explains what Hoosiers can expect when they go to the polls. Take a look at the full Voter's Bill of Rights or read our quick guide below. You can also download our one-pager of your rights in standard or large print.
