Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson is reminding Hoosiers that early and absentee voting for the May primary election begins today.

From now until May 7, eligible voters can cast an absentee ballot in-person at their county clerk’s office or request an absentee ballot by mail.

Voters who choose to vote absentee in-person have until 12 p.m. May 7, the day before the primary election, to cast their ballot. Voters who choose to vote by mail may request an absentee ballot online at or from their county clerk’s office. Requests for absentee ballots by mail must be delivered by April 30.

“Early voting and absentee voting give Hoosiers more options when casting their ballots and many take advantage of the opportunity,” Lawson said. “In the 2016 primary, we saw 282,288 voters cast absentee ballots, and it is clear Hoosiers value that flexibility.”

Military families are encouraged to remind those serving overseas to request an absentee ballot in advance of the deadline.

Hoosier voters can go to to view a sample ballot and check their county election information. Some counties allow in-person absentee voting at multiple locations, at the discretion of the local election board.

“I encourage all Hoosier voters to visit to educate themselves on who they’ll be voting for and where they’ll be voting,” Lawson said. “An informed electorate is key to a successful government and I hope all voters take advantage of this tool.”

Hoosiers who are unsure of their registration can confirm their registration online at

Voters may also request an absentee ballot and verify their polling location on the website.
