BMV extends hours for polling place identification

By The Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles says license branches will extend their hours next week to issue ID cards and driver's licenses for identification at polling places during the general election.

The BMV says its branches will be open Nov. 5 from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Nov. 6 from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Branches will only process new, amended or replacement ID cards and renewed, amended, or replacement driver's licenses and learner permits on those days.

The BMV says individuals who hold a driver's license or ID card that expired after the last general election may use them as proof of identification for voting purposes.
