It’s Indiana Primary Election Day, Michigan Special Election Day

"Vote!" by H. Michael Karshls, some rights reserved


Voters all across Indiana will be heading to the polls today to cast their vote in the 2023 primaries which primarily focuses on municipal government races. Across the Hoosier state, polls are open from 6 A.M. until 6 P.M. Anyone who is in line at their respective precinct by 6 P.M. tonight will be allowed to legally cast their ballot.

When arriving at your precinct, voters should remember that they must bring a government-issued photo ID.

A voter’s ID must:

  • Include the voter’s name, which must confirm—not necessary to be identical— to the name on the individual’s voter registration record.
  • Include a photograph of the individual.
  • Except for certain military and veterans documents, include an expiration date that shows the ID is current or expired after November 8, 2022.
  • Be issued by the State of Indiana or the U.S. Government.

A reminder that your ballot will only show candidates that are running for the party you have registered under. Anyone who would like to check their voting status or view other relevant voting information can do so here.


Jurisdictions in 68 Michigan counties will hold elections on May 2. Check this by county list to see if your community is one of them.

Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Check your registration status at the Michigan Voter Information Center at Michigan.gov/Vote.

The Secretary of State encourages voters who already have an absentee ballot at home to fill it out and sign the back of the envelope. Voters should deliver it to their city or township clerk’s secure ballot drop box, or to the clerk’s office if possible, to avoid any U.S. Postal Service delays. Each jurisdiction in the state is now required to have a drop box available for voters to use.

In-person voting will be available in every jurisdiction holding an election for voters who choose to do so.

Voting and returning an absentee ballot

You have until 8 p.m. on Election Day to complete your ballot and return it to the clerk’s office or drop box. Your ballot will not be counted unless your signature is on the outside of the return envelope and matches your signature on file.

If you’re already registered at your current address, you can request an absent voter ballot in person at your clerk’s office anytime up to 4 p.m. on the day prior to the election (May 1).

If you still have your absentee ballot and decide that you want to vote in person, you may do so by surrendering the ballot at your polling place. If you lost your absentee ballot or if it was destroyed, you may sign a statement affirming this and vote at the polls.

In-person voting

Polling places will be open in every jurisdiction on Election Day for voters who want to vote in person.

Each polling location will have at least one voting station adapted to allow a person to vote while seated.

In addition, all voters, including voters with disabilities, have access to a Voter Assist Terminal in all polling places. The Voter Assist Terminal helps the voter mark a ballot. It will mark the ballot with the voter’s choices but does not tally the votes. Once the ballot is marked, it is counted in exactly the same fashion as all other ballots.
