Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles license branches, including those in Batesville, Brookville and Versailles, will extend hours of operation on Monday, May 5, and Tuesday, May 6, to issue state ID cards and driver’s licenses to provide voters with credentials for use at polling locations, said Commissioner Don Snemis.
Branches will be open Monday, May 5, from 8:30 a.m.-8 p.m. and Tuesday, May 6, from 6 a.m.-6 p.m. 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 a free, state-issued ID card 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. These documents are required to obtain a new state ID card or driver’s license: one document proving your identity, such as a birth certificate or passport; one document proving the Social Security number, such as a Social Security card, pay stub or W-2; one document proving lawful status in the United States, such as a birth certificate or passport; two documents proving Indiana residency, such as a voter registration card, utility bill or bank statement.

All license branches will resume normal business hours and operations Wednesday, May 7.
