INDIANAPOLIS (March 25, 2020) — In response to recommendations from Governor Eric Holcomb, Secretary of State Connie Lawson, and the leadership of Indiana’s major political parties, the Indiana Election Commission has issued an order making it easier for Hoosiers to vote in the June 2nd Primary Election. Governor Holcomb previously moved the primary from May 5th to June 2nd.

Grandfathers applications already received for an absentee ballot, which did not state an excuse permitting the person to vote by mail.

Loosens restrictions on students who wish to serve as poll workers or absentee board members.
