Your Rights Your Vote

This November, whether you choose to vote by mail or at your polling place, you have rights when making your voice heard.   Here are a few things to keep in mind if you decide to cast your ballot in person:

  • If the polls close while you're in line, stay in line.   You can still vote
  • If you sign the electronic pollbook and then there is a technical problem, DO NOT LEAVE the voting site.   Once you sign the pollbook you cannot vote somewhere else.
  • Under federal law, you have the right to receive help at the polls if you're a voter with a disability or have difficult reading or writing in English.
  • If an election worker can't find your name on the list of registered voters, you're still entitled to vote a provisional ballot.
  • If you cannot provide an acceptable Indiana identification, you are also entitled to vote a provisional ballot.
  • If you experience voter intimidation (a federal crime), such as aggressive questioning about your citizenship status or voting record, you can report it to the nonpartisan Election Protection Hotline at 866-OUR-VOTE.
