BMV will extend its operating hours for Election Day

INDIANA – The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles will extend its hours to accommodate voters who need identification at polling places.

On Monday, Nov. 2 and Tuesday, Nov. 3, all BMV branches in the state will have extended hours for voters.

Branches will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Nov. 2 and from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Nov. 3.

All locations will also stay open through the lunch hour.

Per state law requirements, BMV branches will only process replacement, new, or amended ID cards, driver’s licenses, and learner permits.

Customers who need to take a knowledge or driving skills exam in order to get a new license can apply for a free ID card to use for voting.

New driver’s licenses and learner permits can be processed if all required testing has been completed.

Individuals can use an expired driver’s license or ID card for voting if the license or ID expired after the last general election date on Nov. 6, 2018.

Indiana BMVs provide free, state-issued ID cards for voting if a person is an unlicensed Hoosier who is also a U.S. citizen, has proper documentation, and is at least 18 years old.
