? The following is a reminder to voter’s of photo ID requirement at the polls, absentee voting deadlines and polling location in Washington County.
As absentee ballots are arriving in the mailboxes across the county, Washington County Clerk, Rita Martin is reminding registered voters of absentee ballot voting deadlines and photo ID requirements.
The clerk’s office will be open for absentee voting on Saturday, November 1, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. If you are planning to vote absentee by mail, your application had to be filed in the clerk’s office by October 27.
November 3 at noon is the deadline to vote absentee in the clerk’s office and to file an application to vote absentee before the traveling board.
Voters are required to present photo ID before casting a ballot either at the polls on election day or before voting absentee in the clerks’ office.
The ID must fit the following criteria:
ID must display your photo.
Voter’s name on the ID must conform with your voter registration record(not identical).
ID must contain an expiration date and either will be current or have expired sometime after November 7, 2006.
ID must be issued by the State of Indianan or the US government.
In most cases, an Indiana’s driver license, Indiana photo ID car, US passport or military service ID will suffice. If a voter does not possess ID, meeting these requirements, the law required the BMV to issue an Indiana State ID card free of charge, as long as the voter is able to present sufficient identifying documentation.
