The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles will extend hours at its locations on Monday, Nov. 5 and Tuesday, Nov. 6 for people to obtain ID cards and driver’s licenses to vote.

Branches will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Nov. 5 and from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Nov. 6.

The BMV will only process new, amended or replacement ID cards along with renewed, amended or replacement driver’s licenses and learner permits. New licenses and permits will be processed only if drivers have completed all required testing.

If you have a driver’s license or ID card that expired after the last general election, the expired card may be used as proof of identification to vote. Also, a temporary paper license is also proof of identification to vote.

If you don’t have a driver’s license, ID cards are available to any Hoosier without a driver’s license who is a U.S. citizen, is at least 18 years old on or before Election Day and provides the correct documents.

That includes the following:

  • Proof of Identity document, such as a birth certificate or passport
  • Proof of Social Security document, such as a Social Security card, pay stub, or W-2
  • Proof of lawful status, such as a birth certificate or passport
  • Proof of residency, two documents such as a voter registration card, utility bill or bank statement

A full list of acceptable documents and branch locations can be found here.
