INDIANAPOLIS (WFFT) -- The U.S. Postal Service has launched a new election mail website to help voters who plan to cast their ballots by mail.
The site assures the American public it can rely on USPS to fulfill its role in the election process.
It recommends domestic, non-military voters to mail their ballots at least one week prior to the state's deadline.
The application to request a vote-by-mail ballot in Indiana must be received no later than 11:59 p.m. on Oct. 22.
In Indiana, to vote absentee-by-mail, you must list an excuse for why you can't vote in-person on election day.
Exceptions include people who are 65 or older or those who have a disability.
You can apply for an absentee ballot and most counties will start mailing out ballots around Sept. 19.
The USPS site also tells you if you can mail your ballot in a collection box (you can) and how much postage you need.
