Indiana's Voter I.D. Requirements Indiana law requires all voters who vote in person to show a form of valid I.D. before signing the poll book. To be valid, identification cards MUST display: 1.) your photo, 2.) your name, which must conform to your voter registration record, 3.) an expiration date that is current or has expired AFTER the last general election (Nov. 4, 2014), and 4.) must be issued by the State of Indiana or U.S. government. College ID's from a state school that meet the above requirements are acceptable but IDs from a private school are not valid. If you do not possess a valid form of ID for voting purposes, the BMV is required to provide a card for FREE ... but only if you ask! To learn more on obtaining a free ID card, click here.

Take Action on Redistricting Reform. Last fall the LWV of Indianapolis and Common Cause/Indiana partnered in a campaign to raise public awareness about the need for an independent redistricting commission. To raise awareness about this issue, a user-friendly resource guide was created.
Please take a moment to read this article by Debbie Asberry, LWVIN Redistricting Task Force Chair, as well as these pieces in the IBJ and Ft. Wayne Journal Gazette. Then, contact you State Senator asking him/her to give redistricting reform a fair hearing.
