BMV Amends Hours to Accommodate Elections


Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles license branches will adjust their hours next Monday and Tuesday in order to accommodate prospective voters. They will be open from 8:30 a.m. until 8 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 2 and from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 3. During those times license branches will only process new, amended or replacement ID card and driver’s license or learner permit applications. New driver’s licenses and learner permits will only be processed if the customer has already completed the required testing.

The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles provides free, state-issued ID cards for voting purposes to any unlicensed Hoosier who is a United States citizen if he or she can provide proper documents and will be at least 18 on or before the date of the next General Election.

Acceptable documents include a proof of identity document like a birth certificate or passport; a proof of Social Security document such as a Social Security card, pay stub that contains the full Social Security number or W-2 form; proof of lawful status, such as a birth certificate or passport; and two documents to show proof of residency, including a voter registration card, utility bill or bank statement.
