Indiana’s primary election voter registration deadline is April 8. Here’s how to register


Indiana residents must register by April 8 to vote in the May primary election.  

The Indiana Democratic and Republican primaries will take place May 7. During these elections, voters will select each party’s candidates including candidates for Indiana governor for the November general election.  

You can register to vote online by visiting Indiana’s voter portal. You can also check your voter registration status and polling location on this portal. 

Additionally, you can also send a completed voter registration form to the Indiana Election Division or your county election office. To register in person, you can deliver a completed voter registration form to your local election office. You can find your local election office’s address and contact information on the voter portal website.  

The Monroe County Election Board office is at 401 W. Seventh St. 

To vote in the primary election, you must be a U.S. citizen and at least 18 on or before the general election Nov. 5. You must also have lived in your precinct for at least 30 days before the general election and not be imprisoned after being convicted of a crime. 

If registering online, you also need to have a valid Indiana driver’s license or state identification card as proof of residence, according to the online voting portal. If registering to vote by mail or in person, you can also provide proof of residence by attaching a copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck or other government document that shows your name and address.
