STATEHOUSE (May 5, 2020) — Indiana's registered voters can now submit an online application to receive their mail-in absentee ballot, according to State Rep. Wendy McNamara (R-Evansville).

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.  

"No matter if Hoosiers cast their vote in person or by mail, their voice will be heard," McNamara said. "Election officials are doing everything they can to navigate this unprecedented situation and ensure a safe and secure election."

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.

McNamara 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.
