I moved from the address at which I am registered. What should I do?
I moved from another state.
If you moved to Indiana from another state, you must register to vote in Indiana to be able to vote. The last day to register in time to vote in the next election is twenty-nine days before the election in which you want to vote.
If you moved from out of state, you are only eligible to register if you have been a resident of Indiana and your precinct for at least the thirty days prior to the day of the election in which you want to vote. But under federal law, if you move within thirty days of a presidential election, you are allowed to vote for President and Vice President in your former state of residence, either in person or by absentee ballot.
I moved within Indiana.
If you moved to a new address within the state, you should complete a new registration form to update your registration records. That form is available here: http://www.in.gov/sos/elections/files/vrg-7(2).pdf. You may also update your information online at: http://indianavoters.in.gov.
The election is right around the corner and I never updated my registration from my previous address. What should I do?
Many registered Indiana voters who move are still entitled to cast a ballot that will be counted — even if they did not notify the appropriate election official about the move before Election Day.
Scenario One: New Address, but Same Polling Place
If you moved to a new address that is covered by the same polling place as your old address, you can vote a regular ballot at that polling place after confirming your change of address at the polling place. This is true regardless of how close to the election you moved.
Scenario Two: New Address in Same County but New Polling Place
If you moved to a new address within the same county but with a different polling place, you are entitled to vote at the polling place associated with your old address after confirming your new address orally or in writing. However, if you moved outside of a municipality you may not return to vote in a municipal election.
Scenario Three: New Address in New County
If you moved to a new address in a different county in Indiana within 30 days of the election you can vote at the polling place associated with your old address after signing an affidavit.
