If you don't have a driver's license, it is a good idea to have some other sort of photo identification, such as a state identification card. There are just too many occasions in daily life that you are required to provide photographic proof of your identity.
Not the least of these is when you vote. Indiana now requires all voters (with a few exceptions) to provide an acceptable form of photo identification at the polling place before being able to cast your ballot.
The Indiana identification card resembles a driver license, but has a non-driver label at the top. All ages are eligible to receive a state ID. The cards cost $13 and are valid for six years. If you are at least 65 years old or disabled, the cost is $10. If you can't afford to pay for a state ID card, you may be issued one for free if the proper documentation is presented.
Visit your local Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) office with:
- Proper identification.
- Completed forms.
- Payment for ID card fee.
ID cards are valid for a period of six years, expiring on your birthday. The renewal fee is $13; for disabled ID or for ID cards holders older than 65, the fee is $10.
To replace a lost or stolen card, follow the same procedure as if you were renewing it. Replacement cards cost $13.
