Indiana BMV extends hours for polling place identification

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana’s license branches are extending their hours on Monday and Tuesday to issue ID cards and driver’s licenses for identification at polling places during the general election.

The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles says its branches will be open Monday from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Tuesday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Branches will only process new, amended or replacement ID cards and renewed, amended, or replacement driver’s licenses and learner permits on those days.

The BMV says individuals who hold a driver’s license or ID card that expired after the last general election may use them as proof of identification for voting purposes.
