Vote Early

How to Vote Early in Indiana

On Tuesday, June 2, 2020 your local polling place will be open for you to cast your ballot from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. However, if you would like to vote early, you have three options. Read the descriptions below to decide which option is the best for you.

Remember, each person may vote only one time in each election.

1. Absentee-in-Person

Voting early in-person is available from May 26, 2020 to June 1, 2020.  All registered Indiana voters are eligible to vote early in-person. Contact your County Clerk’s office to find locations and hours for early voting.
 
Remember, a valid photo ID is required to vote early in-person. You can find examples of acceptable photo IDs here.

2. Absentee-by-Mail

All voters are eligible to cast their ballot by mail in the Primary Election. In order to vote by mail, you must complete and submit a one-page application before or on Thursday, May 21, 2020 at 11:59pm to your County Clerk’s office.

3. Travelling Board

Some voters are eligible to cast their vote through the use of the travelling board.  The travelling board consists of two poll workers, one from each major party.  The poll workers bring a ballot to your house; assist you in filling out your ballot, if needed; and return it to election officials to be counted.

You may be eligible to vote through the use of the travelling board if you are:

  • Experiencing illness or injury,

  • Caring for a person who will be confined at home on Election Day, or

  • A voter with a disability who’s polling place is not accessible.

In order to vote through the use of the travelling board, you must complete and submit a one-page application by noon on Monday, June 1, 2020 to your County Clerk’s office.

Primary Election Day is Tuesday, June 2, 2020.  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.
