Secretary Of State Connie Lawson Introduces Updated Indianavoters.com Website

Last updated on Thursday, February 8, 2018

(INDIANAPOLIS) - Today, Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson is introducing the newly updated Indianavoters.com website.

The newly updated website has streamlined the voter registration process, enables voters to share they are registered on social media and will provide election night results.

"I encourage all Hoosier voters to visit IndianaVoters.com to register to vote, educate themselves on who they'll be voting for and where they'll be voting," said Secretary Lawson. "An informed electorate is the key to a successful democracy so I encourage all voters to take advantage of this tool."

Voters who need to register for the 2018 elections can log on to Indianavoters.com today to register. To register to vote online, you must have a valid driver's license or state identification card, be a citizen of the United States, be at least 18 years old on or before the next general election, have lived in your precinct for at least 30 days before the election and not currently be imprisoned after being convicted of a crime.

Voters who are already registered can use the site to find their polling place and voting hours. With more than 30 counties now using the vote center model, the site has been updated to feature vote center voting locations, hours and driving directions. Voters in traditional precinct counties will also be able to view their voting locations, voting hours and directions.

Once an individual is registered to vote, Indianavoters.com can help the voter prepare to cast their ballot by previewing who is on their ballot. The site list all candidates, the office they are running for and their political party. It also list public questions if they will appear on the voter's ballot.
