Hoosiers have one week left to register to vote for Indiana’s 2020 primary election.
When Indiana moved its primary back to June 2 (from May 5) due to the COVID-19 crisis, the state election commission had to move the rest of its deadlines to compensate.
The first is the voter registration deadline: that’s now Monday, May 4 by the end of the day. Hoosiers can register online at IndianaVoters.com.

That site is also where people can soon, entirely online, request an absentee vote-by-mail ballot. That option is available to all Hoosiers for this primary, due to the pandemic.
Voters must apply for that ballot by the end of the day on Thursday, May 21. And their vote-by-mail ballot must arrive at their county election office by noon on Election Day, June 2.
This is a rapidly evolving story, and we are working hard to bring you the most up-to-date information. However, we recommend checking the websites of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or the Indiana State Department of Health for the most recent numbers of COVID-19 cases.
