For the first time in history, every single Hoosier voter can vote by mail. If you’re wondering how you can do it, we’ve got you covered. Here’s everything you need to know about voting in the 2020 primary:

There are three ways to register to vote:

  1. Register online here if you have an Indiana driver’s license or ID.

  2. You can print the Voter Registration Application and mail in the form. Any registration form postmarked on or before May 4 can be accepted if the voter is otherwise eligible.
