For many college students, this election will be the first time they can exercise their right to vote. This can leave many students with multiple questions about Election Day Nov. 8.

To ensure your Election Day is as stress free as possible, make sure you know the answer to these five questions about voting in Delaware County.

1.) What should I bring?

To be able to vote in Delaware County, you need a government issued ID such as a driver’s license, passport or military ID. A student ID will not be accepted as a valid form of identification.

2.) When do polls open?

Polls in Indiana open at 6 a.m. and close at 6 p.m.

3.) Where can I vote?

There are 98 polling locations in Delaware County. For a complete list, check out this list

4.) How can I get there?

If driving or carpooling is not an option for you, you can always choose a location within walking distance from campus such as:
