STATEHOUSE (Oct. 14, 2020) – Hoosiers can vote absentee-in-person at several locations across Southeast Indiana until Nov. 2, according to State Rep. Randy Frye (R-Greensburg).

In Indiana, all registered voters are eligible to vote early in-person. For hours, dates and locations for early voting, Hoosiers can contact their county clerk or visit IndianaVoters.com and click on "Find Your Polling Place." When voting before or on Election Day, voters must present a valid photo ID.

"Early voting is a great opportunity for many Hoosiers who do not want to wait to cast their ballots until Election Day," Frye said. "Whether you are looking to avoid longer lines at the polls or have a more flexible schedule on early voting days, there are many reasons to take advantage of voting absentee-in-person."

Hoosiers who want to vote absentee-by-mail should visit IndianaVoters.com to check eligibility requirements and fill out the online application before the deadline on Thursday, Oct. 22. Applications can also be downloaded and mailed, emailed or hand-delivered to the local county office. Frye encourages voters to return their mail-in ballots as quickly as possible.

Polling places statewide will be open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Election Day, Nov. 3. For more information on the 2020 General Election, including polling locations and to see who is on the local ballot, visit IndianaVoters.com.

Indiana Secretary of State's Office said 30,000 poll workers are needed to run 5,000 precincts across the state on Election Day. Frye encourages Hoosiers, especially younger adults, to consider signing up to be a poll worker. To get started and learn more, contact the county clerk or other local party representative, or visit the state's website at workthepolls.in.gov. He said poll workers can earn up to $150 for their service, and that the state is providing masks, gloves, hand sanitizer and disinfectants to local election officials to protect poll workers, election staff and voters.
