»Voting Instructions

Plan Ahead  - Visit www.acimap.us/aceb or www.indianavoters.com to check your registration and polling place.  You may also call us at 260-449-7329.   Review this video about voting on the electronic voting machines. If you will not be able to go to your precinct to vote on Election Day, check your eligibility to vote absentee.

Bring ID - A voter must provide government issued photo ID before casting a ballot. 

Ensure Your Vote Counts - If you get to the polling place and your name is not on the list, get help from a poll worker to make sure your vote counts.  You may be directed to another voting location, or given a provisional ballot.

Know Your Rights - Read the Indiana Voter Bill of Rights .  

Request assistance - State law requires that polling locations and voting machines be accessible to elderly voters and voters with disabilities. If you need assistance voting, you may choose someone to help you (other than your employer or union officer) or one poll worker from each major political party will be available to assist you.  If you wish to file a grievance about your polling place's accessibility or report possible fraudulent election activities please call the Hoosier Voter Hotline at 1-866-IN-1-VOTE (866-461-8683).
