INDIANAPOLIS — BMV license branches will extend hours of operation Monday and Tuesday to issue state identification cards and driver’s licenses to provide voters with credentials for use at polling locations.
Branches will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. May 5 and from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday. To ensure voters have immediate access to services, license branches will only process ID cards, driver’s licenses and learner’s permits. Driver’s tests will not be administered.
The Indiana BMV provides free, state-issued ID cards for voting purposes to any unlicensed Hoosier, as long as he or she can provide proper documentation and will be old enough to vote in the general election. The following documents are required to obtain a new state ID card or driver’s license. A complete list can be found at www.mybmv.com:
• One document proving your identity, such as a birth certificate or passport.
• One document proving your Social Security number, such as a Social Security card, pay stub or W-2.
• One document proving your lawful status in the United States, such as a birth certificate or passport.
• Two documents proving your Indiana residency, such as a voter registration card, utility bill or bank statement.
All license branches will resume normal business hours and operations Wednesday. Branches normally closed on Wednesdays will re-open Thursday.
