INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana’s license branches will be open the day before the state’s May primary and for longer hours on Election Day. The effort is to help voters get the official identification they’ll need at polling places.

Most of Indiana’s Bureau of Motor Vehicles’ branches are typically closed on Mondays, but they’ll all be open from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Monday, May 2, and from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, May 3.

BMV staff will only process new, amended or replacement ID cards, and renewed, amended or replacement driver’s licenses and learner permits those two days.

The ID cards and driver’s licenses can be used for identification at polling places.

License branches will resume regular business hours on May 4.
