STATEHOUSE (April 30, 2020) — Indiana's registered voters can now submit an online application to receive their mail-in absentee ballot, according to State Rep. Sharon Negele (R-Attica).

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the state's primary election is postponed to June 2 and Hoosiers must be registered by May 4 to vote. 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.  

"While the pandemic is effecting some of our election processes, it's critical for Hoosiers to be able to cast their vote in a safe and secure way," Negele said. "Registered voters can submit their mail-in absentee ballot or they can still vote in person during early voting or on June 2. We are taking every step to ensure each vote cast is secure."

To request a mail-in ballot online, visit 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.

Negele 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.
