The deadline to register to vote or update voter information for Indiana’s May primary election is next Monday, April 9.

Secretary of State Connie Lawson says people may register at county voter registration offices, county clerks’ offices or Bureau of Motor Vehicles license branches.

New Indiana voters or those who’ve moved or changed names since the last election must update registrations by the close of business Monday.

People can also mail in registration forms as long as they’re postmarked by April 9. If they have a current Indiana driver’s license or BMV identification card, they also can register online.

April 9 also marks the start of early absentee voting.
