The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) is extending its branch hours for the upcoming primary election.

Branches will be open on Monday, June 1 from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. and on Tuesday, June 2 from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Appointments are not required for these two days, but service is limited to only issuing new, amended, renewed or replacement ID cards and driver’s licenses for voting purposes. All other BMV services are not available June 1 and 2.

Appointments will resume on June 3 and will be required for all transactions.

The CDC has implemented the following guidelines for all BMV branches:

  • All customers and employees should leave 6 feet of space between themselves and others.
  • Hands should be washed and sanitized frequently.
  • Masks are required for customer-facing employees and are strongly recommended for customers
  • Lobby chairs will be positioned at least 6 feet apart.
  • The number of customers permitted in the branch at one time will vary by location. Once the permitted number is reached, the next customer will be asked to wait outside. Sidewalks will be marked as necessary with appropriate spacing.
  • Frequently touched items will be cleaned with disinfectant wipes between each customer.
  • Plexiglas barriers will be cleaned a minimum of twice a day.
  • All branches will be cleaned the evening of June 1, 2020 and June 2, 2020.

Individuals who hold a driver’s license or ID card that has expired after the last General Election (November 6, 2018) may use the expired card as proof of identification for voting purposes.
