The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) will extend its hours of operation the day before Election Day, and the day itself, to issue ID cards and driver’s licenses for use at polling places.

On Monday, November 2, hours will be extended from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. All branches will also be open on Tuesday, November 3, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Branches will only process new, amended, or replacement ID cards, driver’s licenses and learner permits.

New licenses and permits will be processed only if the customer has previously completed all required testing. Customers required to take a knowledge or driving skills exam may choose to apply for a free ID card to use for voting purposes.

Those who hold a driver’s license or ID card that expired after the last general election on November 6, 2018, may use it as proof of identification for voting purposes.

All branches will resume regular business hours on Wednesday, Nov. 4.
