INDIANAPOLIS —Indiana residents have a say in the state’s next license plate design.

Three plate designs were unveiled this morning at the Indiana State Fair by BMV Commissioner Kent Abernathy.

“This is going to be a fun process for Hoosiers during the next four weeks,” said Abernathy. “We have three interesting designs and I hope all state residents will vote and let us know which one they like the best. The winning design will appear on vehicles all over Indiana.”

The three designs for the public vote are; a blue, red and green plate depicting a covered bridge over a creek; a white, blue and yellow choice with a torch and stars over the silhouette of Indiana and the slogan “The Hoosier State;” and a plate with a white background, blue numbers and a yellow, bottom border with the slogan, “Crossroads of America.”

Hoosiers can vote for their favorite plate at myBMV.com and at the BMV State Fair display in Exposition Hall through the end of the fair. Voting ends at midnight on September 5, 2016.

The winning plate design will appear on vehicles in January 2017 as older plates are replaced at the end of the normal seven-year life cycle.
