Absentee voting in Indiana, also called “mail-in voting” or “by-mail voting”, is casting your vote by mail-in ballot before the day of the Election. All states will mail a ballot to you if specific criteria are met, but some states have much stricter rules to meet these conditions. The voter may return the ballot in person or by mail. With uncertainties and unknowns around USPS delivery of your "mail-in" ballot during Covid-19, you may want to check for ballot drop-off boxes in your area as an alternative way to deliver your absentee ballot.
In order to vote absentee by mail, complete the Application for Absentee Ballot (ABS-Mail) and mail it to your local county election office at the address on the second page of the ABS-Mail.
You can also vote absentee in person beginning 28 days before Election Day at locations designated by your county's election board. For more information, contact your local county election office. Contact information for all 92 county election offices can be found at www.IndianaVoters.com.
Early In-person Voting
Early voting in Indiana allows you to cast your vote in person before the day of the Election at specific polling locations that may differ from the Election Day locations. Voting early in person allows you to cast your vote while the number of people waiting to vote is much smaller than Election Day. Please follow the recommended CDC Covid-19 safety guidelines.
Voting early in-person is available from October 6, 2020 to November 2, 2020. All registered Indiana voters are eligible to vote early in-person. Contact your County Clerk’s office to find locations and hours for early voting.
Remember, a valid photo ID is required to vote early in-person. You can find examples of acceptable photo IDs here.
