Are you aware that you can vote in the November elections if you are 18 years old by November 3rd, 2020? Not sure how? Follow these easy steps!
1. You MUST register by TODAY to vote on November 3rd. To help with fraud, Indiana law does not allow same day registering and voting.
2. Go to the Indiana government site and follow the directions. You will need a valid Indiana Driver's License or a Indiana State Identification Card (which you can get for free at the BMV if you don't have a driver's license)
3. Done! You can also use the website to find your polling place, see who is on your ballot, and how to vote with an absentee ballot. Still have questions? Feel free to see Mrs. Myers in C107 and she will gladly help you!
November 3rd (voting for federal, state, and local position)
Polls are open from 6 am to 6 pm.
On Saturday, October 31, 2020, Congressman Jim Banks is hosting a Service Academy Day at the Fort Wayne Air National Guard Base, where a comprehensive overview of the U.S. Service Academies and the respective admissions processes will be provided. Students will also have the opportunity to meet with officials from the service academies, Congressman Banks, the Third Congressional District Service Academy Advisory Board, and representatives from Congressman Banks office.
Students of all ages and grades, parents, teachers, and guidance counselors are encouraged to join us to learn about the process and the requirements necessary to apply for nominations to the U.S. Military Academy, the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Air Force Academy, the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, and the U.S. Coast Guard Academy.
Attendees may enter the base via the security entrance just east of the airport beginning at 9:30 a.m. To expedite security at the gate all persons attending should RSVP to our office by Friday, October 23 , 2020. To RSVP, email RepBanksAcademies@mail.house.gov and provide the driver’s license number, state of issuance, and the first, middle, and last name for anyone planning to attend.
As you may know, scholarships to a Service Academy are valued at $400,000 for a student. I have enclosed a flyer and an “ad” that can be used on your video screens or in newsletters for you to share with your students. For my office, the Service Academy Application Deadline for the Class of 2025 (high school class 2021 or later) is Monday, November 23, 2020. Applications should be sent to his Fort Wayne District Office. Please note that the application deadline has been extended for this year. The application is also available online at https://banks.house.gov/services/service-academy-nominations.
Our district Service Academy Nominations are highly competitive, and the Service Academy Day helps to give direction to students who hope to gain a nomination from our office.
