Get #ReadyToVote! September is National Voter Registration Month

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson is reminding eligible voters that September 2018 is National Voter Registration Month. Hoosiers who need to register should do so today at www.Indianavoters.com or on a smart phone using the Indiana Voters app.

“With only nine weeks to go until the general election on November 6th, there is no time to waste in verifying your voter registration and polling location,” noted Secretary Lawson. “Voting is a privilege we enjoy as citizens and getting ready to vote in Indiana is simple and straightforward.”

The nation’s Secretaries of State established September as National Voter Registration Month in 2002 to encourage voter participation and increase awareness of state requirements and deadlines for voting. Eligible citizens who are 18 years of age or older may sign up at their county voter registration office, online at www.IndianaVoters.com, or through the Indiana Voters app (available for Android and Apple users).

The deadline to register or update your registration is October 9th, 2018.
