BMV Branches Extend Hours For November Election

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Time is running out for Indiana residents who want to vote in next month's midterm elections to obtain the proper identification they'll need to cast ballots at polling places.

Indiana law requires residents to show either a driver's license or a state-issued identification card at polling places before they can vote.

With the Nov. 4 election just two weeks away, the Bureau of Motor Vehicles announced Tuesday that all license branches will be open on Monday, Nov. 3, to allow residents lacking ID to obtain it at their local branch. License branches are normally closed on Mondays.

The BMV also says that on Election Day, Nov. 4, license branches will be open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Those are the same hours that Indiana's voting sites will be open.
