Vote

Early voting at Marion County satellite voting sites beginning today.

“Voters are strongly encouraged to take advantage of Marion County's six satellite voting sites that are spread across the county,” says the Marion County Clerk's Office. “The six satellite voting sites are conveniently located near Indy Go bus lines, and have ample parking that is free near their facilities.”

Hours at each of the six satellite voting centers are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays through Nov. 4; and weekends 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 27 and 28, and Nov. 3 and 4.

Locations include:

  • Glick Technology Center, on the campus of Ivy Tech Community College, 2620 N. Meridian St.
  • Franklin Township Annex Learning Center, 6019 S. Franklin Road
  • International Marketplace Coalition, 3685 Commercial Drive
  • Lawrence Education & Community Center, 6501 Sunnyside Road
  • Perry Township Government Center, 4925 Shelby St.
  • Washington Township Government Center, 5302 N. Keystone Ave.

Voters may also head directly to the Marion County Clerk's Office, inside the City-County Building.

Hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays through Nov. 4.

To vote early, voters do not need a reason but must provide a valid photo ID issued by the state of Indiana or federal government.

When you arrive at an early voting location, you will be asked to complete an application to vote absentee.

Any person casting a vote before Election Day is considered an absentee voter under Indiana law since your ballot won’t be counted until Election Day.

After you present your ID and your application is approved, you will be handed a ballot to complete on site. You then seal your ballot in a security envelope and it is safely stored until it’s counted on Election Day.

The Marion County Clerk's Office reported an over threefold increase over the 2014 midterm elections at the conclusion of the first week of early voting.
