The Indiana BMV is extending hours two days to assist with state-issued ID’s needed to vote in the general election.

Bureau of Motor Vehicles branches will be open 8:30 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday, Nov. 2, and 6 a.m.-6 p.m. Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 3. Branches will be open through the lunch hour.

State ID cards and driver’s licenses can be used for identification at polling places. Bbranches will process new, amended or replacement ID cards, and renewed, amended or replacement driver’s licenses and learner permits. New driver’s licenses and learner permits will be processed provided the customer has previously completed all required testing.

A driver’s license or ID card that expired after the last general election (Nov. 6, 2018) may be used as proof of identification for voting purposes.

The paper interim credential issued to customers at the branch at the time of the transaction or after a customer has completed an internet transaction is acceptable proof of identification for voting purposes.

The Indiana BMV provides free, state-issued ID cards for voting purposes to any unlicensed Hoosier who is a U.S. citizen, who can provide proper documentation, and who will be at least 18 on or before the next general or municipal election. Find full requirement at
