HANCOCK COUNTY — Don’t be fooled by some of the false information on social media and elsewhere about how and when you can vote. If you want your vote to count, here’s what you need to know now. 

• You cannot vote by text or email. We repeat: You cannot cast a ballot by texting or sending an email. Don’t fall for it. To vote in Hancock County, you have to go to one of the vote centers listed below.

• Early voting ends at noon today, Monday, Nov. 7, and polls open at 6 a.m.  Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 8. The polls close at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 8. Claims that you can vote at any other time or day are completely false. Think you can vote on Nov. 9? Plain and simple, you are wrong.

So, Hancock County registered voters, you can cast your ballots from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 8,  at any of the following 15 vote centers:

And a few more reminders:

What identification you will need: An Indiana driver’s license, Indiana photo ID card, United States passport, military ID and a state university issued photo ID can be accepted to vote. An out-of-state driver’s license cannot be accepted. The local Bureau of Motor Vehicles branch, 1821 E. Main St., will be open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Election Day for people who need a driver’s license or state ID card.

Review your ballot now: Unsure who you’re casting a ballot for? Each voter should review his or her ballot ahead of time to reduce confusion and any questions that might arise on Election Day. A voter can go online at indianavoters.com and click on “Who’s on your Ballot,” to review their ballot.

Lines too long? Here’s what to do: Voters do not have to stay at the same vote center and wait if there is a long line. They can go to any of the 15 vote centers and vote.
