Absentee voting is an important way to make sure all Hoosiers have the opportunity to make their voice heard, even if they aren’t going to be home when there are opportunities to vote. Jim Banks can attest to the simplicity of absentee voting, he cast his 2014 ballot while deployed overseas. If you aren’t able to participate in early voting and you know you won’t be available to vote on the day of the Primary Election then be sure to apply for an absentee ballot.
Voting by absentee ballot is not a complicated process. Any registered Indiana voter is eligible to apply for an absentee ballot by mail. The process doesn’t open up until a month before the election. If you know you’d like to vote by absentee and you’d like for us to send you a reminder to cast your ballot, just let us know using this form and we’ll be glad to get you the information you need.
If you or someone you know may need assistance casting their ballot, you may request an absentee ballot by traveling board. In this case a bi-partisan absentee voter board from the county will travel to the voter’s location and provide them their absentee ballot. This board may also assist the voter with completing their ballot if they request assistance. Be sure to let us know if you need help requesting a travelling board for any voters who has mobility issues that would prevent them from getting to the polling place or completing the ballot on their own.
