The last day to request an absentee ballot in Indiana for the 2020 general election is Thursday, Oct. 22.
Registered voters in Indiana can apply for a ballot by going to the Indiana voter portal and following the appropriate link to apply online to vote by mail.
According to Indiana’s government website, voters must have a reason to vote absentee. Exceptions include being absent from one’s county during the hours the polls are open, being more than 65 years of age, being scheduled to work, being confined due to injury or illness and more listed on the website.
Ballots must be delivered by noon on Election Day, Nov. 3. Voters can also vote early up until Election Day or vote in person on Nov. 3.
The IDS ran an experiment to test mail times and found on average it took a little more than three days for letters to arrive at their destinations. Indiana voters can track whether their completed ballot was received through the online voter portal.
