Absentee Voting Information
Vote by Mail Information
To absentee vote by mail, you can request an application from the Marion County Election Board or download an Application for Absentee Ballot online. Absentee ballot requests must be submitted in every election; applications are not kept on file for civilian voters. When you have completed and returned the application, a ballot will be mailed to you once they are legally available.
Applications and ballots postmarked by their respective deadlines but received by the Election Board after the deadline date cannot be processed.
The qualifications for receiving an absentee ballot by mail are:
To absentee vote by traveling board, you must complete an absentee ballot application from the Marion County Election Board, choosing one of the two options under part "C." Please be sure to include a working telephone number on your application so Election Board staff can contact you to schedule an appointment for a bi-partisan team to visit your residence.
Any Marion County voter can choose to vote early in the Clerk's office. Traditionally, early voting begins 29 days before any election. Voters must complete an absentee ballot application onsite and present it along with a valid, photo ID card issued by the state of Indiana or federal government. When the application is approved, voters are given a ballot to complete. The ballot is sealed in an envelope and delivered to their precinct on Election Day.
