Polls set for Tuesday’s election

Polling places for Tuesday’s General Election will be open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Voters are reminded to take a photo identification, such as a driver’s license, to cast their ballots.
R. Scott Waddell, Commissioner of the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles, said that BMV license branches will extend hours of operation Monday and Tuesday to issue ID cards and driver’s licenses that may be used for identification at a polling place.
License branches will be open Monday from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Tuesday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. only to process new, amended or replacement ID cards and renewed, amended or replacement driver’s licenses, learner permits and CDLs. Other than disability placards, the branches will not perform any other BMV services.
The Indiana BMV provides free, state-issued ID cards for voting purposes to any unlicensed Hoosier, as long as he or she can provide proper documentation and will be old enough to vote. The following documents are required to obtain a new state ID card or driver’s license (a complete list can be found online at www.mybmv.IN.gov):
‘Proof of identity document, such as a birth certificate or passport.
