STATEHOUSE (May 11, 2020) — Indiana's registered voters can now submit an online application to receive their mail-in absentee ballot, according to State Rep. Shane Lindauer (R-Jasper).

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the state's primary election is postponed to June 2. Registered voters do not need a reason to vote absentee in the upcoming election, and can request a ballot online or by fax, mail or email.  

"It's critical that our primary election process moves forward safely and efficiently despite the pandemic," Lindauer said. "We are evaluating our current practices to accommodate Indiana's more at-risk and vulnerable citizens for contracting the virus so that our election will continue to be safe and secure for all."

To request a mail-in ballot online, visit IndianaVoters.com and click on the "apply online" button under "Vote by Mail or Traveling Board." Election ballot applications can be requested through May 21, and mail-in ballots must be received by noon on June 2.

Lindauer said for voters who have already received a mail-in ballot dated May 5, 2020, it will be considered valid. Voters can still choose to cast their ballot in person, either during early voting May 26 through June 1, or from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on June 2. To check your registration status, find early vote locations and hours, or to see who's on your ballot, visit IndianaVoters.com.
