While voting in person today, we ask that you please have some patience with your fellow Porter County voters as they cast their ballot. For some voters, especially our seniors, casting a long ballot on the new machines is a new process and it may take them longer. Casting your ballot is fundamental to our democracy. Voters will be allowed to take whatever time necessary to cast their vote.

Porter County Elections & Registration

When you go to vote you will need to bring with a photo ID that meets 4 criteria to be accepted for voting purposes:

1. It must display your photo.
2. It must display your name (that conforms to your voter registration record).
3. It must display an expiration date ( either current or having expired after the last General Election ). Please note: An ID issued by the US Department of Defense, a branch of the uniformed services, the Merchant Marine, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (or Veterans Administration), or the Indiana National Guard is not required to have an expiration date, or may state that the document has an "indefinite" expiration date.
4. Must be issued by the State of Indiana or the U.S. Government.

In most situations, an Indiana Driver's License, Indiana Photo ID Card, Military ID, or U.S. Passport is sufficient.

A student ID from an Indiana State School may only be used if it meets all of the above mentioned criteria. A student ID from a private institution may not be used.

If you are unable or unwilling to present ID that meets these requirements, you may vote with a provisional ballot. If you cast a provisional ballot, you have until 12 noon 10 days after the election to follow up with the Porter County Election Board and either present the necessary documentation or affirm one of the law's exemptions that apply to you.
