TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WANE/WLFI) – As an early voting period that thousands upon thousands participated in wraps up Monday, attention will shift to Tuesday’s deciding Election Day.

The polls in Indiana will be open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday.

If you’re unsure where to vote, Google has built an easy web portal showing polling place locations by simply submitting an address. The service shows the candidates you’ll see on the ballot and provides the requirements to vote.

Indiana voters can also visit IndianaVoters.com to register to vote or update a registration, review the candidates on the ballot including their campaign finance records, or find a polling place. The site also allows voters to track an absentee ballot or learn how to be a paid poll worker.

Indiana’s Election Division’s website also provides information on the voting process, and residents can call the Hoosier Voter Hotline at 866-IN-1-VOTE to speak with a representative for information, polling locations and to file grievances. That toll-free line will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday.

Every voter is required to present a government issued ID before casting their vote at the polls.

Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson Monday urged residents Monday to become informed before heading to the polls.

“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 Lawson. “An informed electorate is the key to a successful democracy so I encourage all voters to take advantage of this tool.”

Lawson said she encourages all voters to check their polling places themselves to ensure they go to the correct location Tuesday, especially after receiving complaints Monday from some citizens in Marion County in regards to wrong polling locations.
