All voters must provide a government issued photo ID before they may cast a ballot. Identification must meet certain criteria:
- It must display the voter's photo.
- It must have the voter's name, which must conform to the voter's registration record.
- It must display an expiration date and must be either current, or have expired after the last general election date.
- It must be issued by either the State of Indiana or by the United States government.
If you have registered to vote but your name isn't on the list, don't panic
. Ask a poll worker
for help to make sure that your vote gets counted. They may direct you to the Courthouse, or give you a provisional ballot.
Read the Directions
The polling places have signs with a wide range of helpful information; directions on how to use the machines, a listing of your rights as a voter, and instructions on how to file a complaint if those rights are violated.
If you are unsure of what to do, ask questions
. The poll workers are there to help. They can show you how to work the voting machines, and they can give you a provisional ballot if you need one. If you're at the wrong polling location, they can tell you how to get to the right one.
