A Message to Indiana Voters

The mid-term election is drawing near, and we need your help to flip Indiana blue in November. It is critical that your voice is heard so we can elect Hoosier Democrats up and down the ballot. With your help, we can send Senator Joe Donnelly back to the Senate and ensure our common sense Hoosier values are represented at all levels of government. For more information about the Indiana Democratic candidates, please visit indems.org/voter-guide.

Even if you have voted from abroad in the past, you still need to request your ballot this year to make sure your vote counts. Just go to votefromabroad.org, fill out the Federal request form, print, sign and send it in to your local election office here in Indiana.

When we vote, we win. We can't do it without you!

Thank you for making the pledge to vote,
John Zody,
Chair, Indiana Democratic Party


Be sure to keep in mind the important dates below:

REGISTER to vote from abroad by Monday, October 29. Your registration form will also request your ballot and may be sent by email, fax or postal mail. We recommend registering by email or fax.


REQUEST to receive your overseas absentee ballot by email/online or fax by Monday, November 5, 12 noon. Request to receive your ballot by mail by Monday, October 29, 11:59 pm. You may send your request form by email, fax or postal mail. We recommend sending your request form by email or fax, and having your ballot delivered to you by email. Due to delivery time we don’t recommend having your ballot delivered to you by post.


RETURN your ballot by Tuesday, November 6. Your ballot sent by email or fax must be received by 12 noon local time on Election Day. If you return your ballot by postal mail, it must be postmarked by Election Day and received by Friday, November 16, 12 noon.



All overseas voters may vote in elections for federal offices (US House and US Senate races). Overseas voters who indicate they “intend to return” may also vote in Indiana state elections.

Note: When you fill in your ballot request form, be aware that selecting “I intend to return” rather than “my return is uncertain” may contribute towards establishing yourself as a tax resident in your voting state. Because the legal requirements to establish "residence" or "domicile" for tax purposes are determined by state law and the specific facts of your life, before you note that you intend to return on your form you may consider seeking advice on these matters from your tax professional.
