Acceptable ID Types for Indiana
Photo ID with:
- Your name as it is in the registration records
- An expiration date, which must be current or expired after the date of the most recent general election. An ID issued by the US Department of Defense, a branch of the uniformed services, the Merchant Marine, or the Indiana National Guard is not required to have an expiration date, or may state that the document has an “indefinite” expiration date.
- Issued by the U.S. government or the state of Indiana.
- Student ID
- From an Indiana State school may only be used if it meets all of the 4 criteria specified above. If student photo ID does not have your current address, you must establish your address with a form of identification that does (other ID, utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, etc).
- A student ID from a private institution may not be used for voting purposes.
What happens when you go to vote without an ID
You can vote using a provisional ballot. You have until 12pm on the Monday after the election to follow up and provide an accepted form of voter ID, or sign an affidavit that a legal exception applies.
