(Indianapolis) – Indiana Secretary of State Todd Rokita reminded Hoosiers today to prepare for the upcoming primary election which is one week away on May 4, 2010. Hoosiers should verify that they are registered to vote, check their polling place location and remember to bring a State of Indiana or U.S. government-issued photo ID to the polls.

Polling places will be open on Tuesday, May 4, 2010, between 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. local prevailing time. Hoosiers can check voter registration status, polling place location and more at

“The Indiana Voters website was created to serve as a one stop shop for Hoosier voters,” said Secretary Rokita. “I encourage all Hoosiers to visit the site as they prepare for Election Day, and to take advantage of the new technologies available, including the ‘Who’s On Your Ballot?’ and ‘Indiana Campaign Finance Online’ features.”

Secretary Rokita's office launched the "Who's On Your Ballot?" online service to provide Hoosier voters with a complete list of candidates who will appear on their upcoming primary and general election ballots. Previously, Hoosiers could not find a comprehensive candidate list for federal, state and local offices until they received their ballot. "Who’s On Your Ballot?" allows Hoosiers to find this information online ahead of going to the polls.

Indiana Campaign Finance Online has been upgraded and re-launched for the 2010 election season. Voters can use improved and added search options to obtain more comprehensive information about the individuals and organizations that contribute to campaigns as well as the campaign committees themselves. This expanded database includes the most recent reports, annual totals and complete lifetime contribution and spending histories for all campaign committees.

Hoosier voters can visit to:

  • Find absentee voting applications,
  • Find information on how to prepare for Election Day,
  • Determine if they are registered to vote,
  • Find information on Indiana’s photo ID requirement,
  • Locate their polling place, and
  • Find information on how to cast an absentee ballot.
