You've heard that every vote counts on Election Day, and the voter registration deadline is quickly approaching for the upcoming primary election in Indiana.

You have less than a week to register. The deadline is April 9.

You can submit an application at your local county clerk's office, or you can stop by any Bureau of Motor Vehicles license branch.

If you wish to do it from the comfort of your home, you can register online by using the Indiana Voters app or by visiting indianavoters.in.gov.

In order to be eligible to register to vote, you must:

• be a citizen of the United States,
• be at least 18 years old on the day of the next general, municipal, or special election,
• have lived in your precinct for at least 30 days before the next general, municipal, or special election (except for certain military voters); and
• not currently be imprisoned after being convicted of a crime.

Indiana's primary election will take place May 8.

Michigan's primary election will be held on August 7.
