INDIANAPOLIS — 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 2 Primary Election. Governor Holcomb previously moved the primary from May 5 to June 2.
The Commission's order included the following changes, which will apply to the June 2 Primary only:
"As we take precautions to protect Hoosiers from the threat of COVID-19, it is vitally important to protect citizens' right to vote," said Secretary Lawson. "I am pleased that our bi-partisan recommendations have been adopted, and I thank the Indiana Election Commission for their expeditious work. With these changes, I am confident our primary will move forward with minimal disruption."
The Commission will meet again on April 22, 2020, at 10 a.m. ET.
Eligible Hoosiers can register to vote online, check their registration status, and request an absentee ballot by visiting www.IndianaVoters.com.
