Hoosiers must register to vote by the end of the day Monday if they want to cast a ballot in this November’s election.

Indiana law cuts off voter registration 29 days before the election. That means this year, it’s Monday, Oct. 7.

Hoosiers can register at their local county clerk’s office or online, at IndianaVoters.com. If they’re signing up at the clerk’s office, the cut-off time is the end of the business day. But online registrations are available until midnight.

Those registering to vote must have a driver’s license or state identification card. They must also be 18 years old by Election Day and have lived in their precinct at least 30 days prior to Nov. 5.

Indiana officials also remind Hoosiers that those convicted of a crime automatically have their voting rights restored once they leave prison – people on parole or probation are still allowed to vote, though they may need to re-register once released from prison.
