STATEHOUSE — Hancock County legislators encourage Hoosier voters to register or check their voting status by the Oct. 10 deadline.

“I encourage all Hoosiers to make their voices heard this November,” said State Rep. Cory Criswell (R-Middletown) in a press release. “There’s not much time left to register, so it’s important to check your voter registration status so they can ensure they can cast their ballots soon.”

Residents of Indiana can register to vote or check their voter registration record by visiting IndianaVoters.com. The state’s website also provides voters with local polling locations ans who’s on their ballot.

“Elections are critical to a functioning democracy, and it’s important for everyone who is eligible to vote to be aware of the Oct. 10 registration deadline,” said State Rep. Bob Cherry (R-Greenfield) in the press release. “By visiting IndianaVoters.com, everyone can register or check their voter status.”

Hoosiers can also register to vote by visiting a county clerk’s office, and a directory is available online at in.gov/courts.

State Rep. Chris Jeter (R-Fishers) said in order to register, Indiana residents must be at least 18 years old on or before the upcoming election, have a valid Indiana Driver’s License or Indiana State Identification Card, be a citizen of the United States, have lived in the same precinct for at least 30 days before the next election and not currently imprisoned after being convicted of a crime.

“With just a few clicks, Hoosiers can access valuable information on the upcoming election, including who’s on their ballot and where they can vote,” said Jeter in the press release. “Elections are critical, and we all have a responsibility to decide who will represent our community.”
