Important Election Reminders Coming to a Mailbox Near You
INDIANAPOLIS – Preparing for the upcoming election is just a mailbox away, thanks to a postcard being sent to Marion County voters by Marion County Clerk Beth White.
The Election Board’s postcard contains basic information including:• ward and precinct,• polling place location and• deadlines for the November 4, 2008 election.
“The presidential election may still be more than a month away, but voters should start preparing now while there is time to update their voter registration information or secure a new photo ID card,” Clerk White said.
To prevent multiple postcards being mailed to the same address, only one card is being mailed to unique addresses in the county’s voter registration database. Any voter who updates their registration or registers for the first time automatically receives a postcard from the Voter Registration office, which provides ward, precinct and polling site location information.
Monday, October 6 is the statewide voter registration deadline for the November 4 election. Registration forms for Marion County residents must be hand-delivered or mailed to the Voter Registration office located at 200 E. Washington St., Room W-131. Forms cannot be mailed, faxed or completed over the phone. Residents can download a form at www.indy.gov/voter or call (317) 327-VOTE to request one.
Voters can also confirm their registration and determine their ward, precinct and polling place location by using the county’s on-line polling place locator found at www.indygov.org/election08. The on-line application provides voter and district information in both English and Spanish.
