STATEHOUSE (Oct. 19, 2020) – Hoosiers can vote absentee-in-person at several locations across Allen and Whitley counties until Nov. 2, according to State Rep. Chris Judy (R-Fort Wayne).

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.

"This option affords everyone more time for in-person voting, with multiple dates and location options before Election Day," said Judy, member of the House Elections and Apportionment Committee. "Don't miss out on your opportunity to make your voice heard in our community."

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 election office. Judy encouraged voters to return their absentee 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. Judy said he 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.
