Now is time to register to vote online

Register to Vote at Deadline is Tuesday Oct 9, 2018.

Tuesday, September 25, is National Voter Registration Day. This is a great time to update your voter registration information and/or register to vote.

The Voter Portal, at, has made this process into a simple online form that takes only a couple of minutes to use.

To register to vote for the first time, you will need your valid Indiana Driver's License or Indiana State Identification Card number.

To check your voter registration status, you can use your ID number or just your name, birthdate and county of residence.

Why you need to register or check your registration:

  • When you’ll turn 18 by Election day (Nov. 6, 2018)
  • When you are a newly naturalized citizen
  • When you move, even if it is just across town (most common reason for voter confusion)
  • When you change your name
  • When you haven’t voted in a while (in which case your registration may have been removed due to inactivity)

What you need to register:

  • Have a valid Indiana Driver's License or Indiana State Identification Card.
  • Be a citizen of the United States.
  • Be at least 18 years old on or before the next general, municipal or special election. (A 17-year-old may register and vote in the primary election if the voter turns 18 on or before the next general or municipal election.)
  • Have lived in your precinct for at least 30 DAYS before the next general, municipal, or special election.
  • Not currently imprisoned after being convicted of a crime.

The upcoming Indiana General Election will be held 6am-6pm local time across the state on Tuesday, November 6, 2018. Deadline to register is Tuesday, October 9, 2018.

You can also register to vote in person at the Jasper County Clerk's office in Rensselaer, or the License Branch in DeMotte and Rensselaer. For more information, including absentee voting requirements, visit the Jasper County Government website.
