FORT WAYNE, Indiana (WANE) – It’s election day and WANE 15 is your local voting office. Polling stations open at six this morning in Indiana.
You have 12 hours to vote today, but there are a few things to keep in mind when casting your vote. Make sure you have photo ID. This can be a driver’s license, military ID, passport, or school student ID.
If you do not have ID, you can cast a provisional vote and have 10 days after the election to report to the county board to provide proper ID. There are specific places where you can vote. Click here to find your voting location.
In Ohio, your hours are 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., giving you a little extra time to get out and vote.
A question of voting security worries many in the United States. Allen County Board of Elections members say everything is being protected, from voters to votes. The voting machines have been set up since last Wednesday and have now been tested and are ready for a long day of use.
“We currently have Allen County [Sheriff’s] Department and the City of Fort Wayne Police Department where they’re going to be policing these locations on election day, all 114, so they’re very aware of the locations. So I think they monitor those places all day and stay close by,” said Amy Scrogham, Allen County Elections Superintendent.
WANE 15 will continue to air on Election Day and right here on WANE.com.
