(Indianapolis, Ind.) – With one day remaining before Election Day, Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson is reminding Hoosiers to be prepared before they head to the polls tomorrow. Voters may verify their polling location at www.indianavoters.com. Secretary Lawson encourages Hoosiers to do this for themselves to ensure they receive correct information.

“I encourage all Hoosier voters to visit IndianaVoters.com to educate themselves on who they’ll be voting for and where they’ll be voting,” said Secretary Lawson. “An informed electorate is the key to a successful democracy so I encourage all voters to take advantage of this tool. We have received a few calls into the office from voters who received information that may be incorrect regarding where to vote. I encourage all Hoosiers to check www.Indianavoters.com for themselves to ensure they go to the correct polling place tomorrow.”

Hoosier voters can go to www.indianavoters.com to look up which candidates will be on their ballot. Voters enter their county of residence, name and date of birth. ‘Who’s On Your Ballot?’ will list the offices, candidates’ names and party just as it will be listed on Election Day.

Hoosiers may also call the toll free Hoosier Voter Hotline at 866-IN-1-VOTE to speak directly to a representative for information, polling locations and to file grievances. Staff will be on hand to answer calls from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. EDT on Election Day.

Voters may also visit the Election Division’s website, www.in.gov/sos/elections, for information to additional questions, including information regarding Indiana’s photo ID law. Indiana’s photo ID law requires every voter to present a government issued ID before casting their vote at the polls. For more information on Photo ID go to http://www.in.gov/sos/elections/2401.htm.
