INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Election officials are urging Indiana residents to double-check their assigned polling site before they head out to vote in Tuesday’s election.

Voters can verify their polling location at by entering their county of residence, their name and date of birth. That website also allows voters to look up the candidate who will appear on their ballot.

Indiana law requires voters to display government-issued photo identification before they can vote.

Polling sites open to voters at 6 a.m. EST Tuesday in 80 of Indiana’s 92 counties. Voting sites open an hour later in 12 counties in northwestern and southwestern Indiana that are on Central Standard Time. All Indiana polling sites will close at 6 p.m. local time.

More than 4.8 million Indiana residents are registered to vote in Tuesday’s election.
