INDIANA Voter ID Information

Registered Indiana voters must show photo ID at the polls to vote. If you are a registered voter but didn't bring your ID to the polling place, you may cast a provisional ballot. In order for your ballot to be counted, you have until noon on Monday after the election to follow up and either provide other forms of ID or sign an affirmation that one of the law's exceptions applies.
