Thursday, Oct. 27 is the last day to request an absentee-by-mail ballot in Indiana. The county election board must receive the application by 11:59 p.m.
Voters can apply for the ballot online or in-person by filling out this form and turning it in to the election office of the county they’re voting in.
Registered voters can request an absentee ballot for multiple reasons, such as if they expect to be absent from the county they’re voting in, if they are scheduled to work the entire time the polls are open, if they’re 65 or older or if they have a disability, among other reasons. A full list of reasons is available on the Indiana Secretary of State's website.
Indiana in-person absentee voting will remain open until noon Nov. 7 at Monroe County’s early voting site on 302 S. Walnut St. Early voting hours can be found online.
