Some Common Voter Registration Issues


In Indiana, a person cannot vote on Election Day unless the person has registered to vote by the deadline which is the 29th day before the election (IC 3-7-13-10). When registering to vote in Indiana a voter does not declare Party affiliation. Registering to vote is a non-partisan function of government.

Disenfranchisement While Imprisoned


A person who has been convicted of a crime and imprisoned following conviction is ineligible to vote while in prison and is removed from the voter registration rolls (IC 3-7-45-2). A person who is imprisoned but has not been convicted of a crime (imprisoned and awaiting trial) is still eligible to vote and run for office.

The following are not considered imprisonment for the purpose of voting. A person who is:
  • On parole
  • On probation
  • Subject to home detention under IC 3-7-46-2
Please note that after a person is released from prison, the person may register to vote and participate in the election process.
