Bureau of Motor Vehicles extends hours ahead of primary election

Local branches of the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles will extend their hours Monday and Tuesday to issue driver’s licenses and I.D. cards for voter identification as the Indiana Primary Election approaches.

The BMV says branches will be open:

  • Monday, 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Tuesday, 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Any voter who must take a knowledge or driving skills exam to obtain or renew a driver’s license can apply for an I.D. card for timely voting purposes.

According to the BMV, if a voter has an expired driver’s license or I.D. card since the last general election, it can still be used as proof of identification for Tuesday’s vote.

Remember, if you need a new card, be sure to bring along these documents:

  • Proof of Identity document, such as a birth certificate or passport.
  • Proof of Social Security document, such as a Social Security card, pay stub, or W-2.
  • Proof of lawful status, such as a birth certificate or passport.
  • Proof of residency, two documents such as a voter registration card, utility bill or bank statement.

Normal business hours will continue on Wednesday.
