If you are a resident of a city or town, local elections are just around the corner. Candidates for mayor, some city judges, council members, clerks and others will be on the ballot Tuesday, November 6.
If you believe you will be unable to place your vote at a polling place for any reason, you may vote absentee. The request form for an absentee ballot may be obtained at www.in.gov/sos/elections/absentee.html, or by contacting your county clerk. An application for an absentee ballot does not require a photo ID. Additionally, any qualified voter may vote early in person, but no earlier than October 9 and no later than noon, November 6, by voting in the clerk's office.
Your specific polling location and voting district information can be acquired by either calling the clerk's office in Allen County (260-449-7424), DeKalb County (260-925-9787) or by visiting http://www.indianavoters.com/.
Keep in mind that you will be required to show a valid state-issued photo ID in order to place your vote at a polling place. If you do not currently have a driver's license, a photo identification card may be obtained for free from any BMV location.
Voter registration closes on October 9, and October 29 is the deadline for absentee by mail applications to be received by your county clerk.
