2020 Election Guide

The Arc of Indiana’s 2020 Election Guide is part of the statewide effort to help families, people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, caregivers and providers register to vote and be engaged in the 2020 elections. Our role is not to endorse candidates or tell you how to vote. Our role is to provide you with information and resources so that you can be an informed voter.

The Election Guide includes information from the candidates for president and governor of Indiana, and information about congressional candidates.

You will also find important information on registering to vote, voter id requirements, absentee voting and accessibility for voters with disabilities.

Register to vote, make a voting plan, and vote on or before November 3rd!

The Arc of Indiana 2020 Election Guide – October 15, 2020 Update
This update includes the restored deadline to return absentee ballots by noon on November 3rd.

The U.S Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit has decided to keep the November 3rd noon deadline for the acceptance of absentee ballots. The ruling overturned an injunction issued by U.S District Judge Sarah Evan Barker who had ruled that the state should accept absentee ballots for up to 10 days after the election provided they were postmarked by Nov. 3. Bottom line – mail in or deliver your absentee ballot ASAP!
