In our last non-presidential election, Indiana’s voter participation was only 28%, lower than any other state.
With the convenience of having ballots mailed to every Indiana registered voter, turnout is likely to double, as it has for every state that has already adopted vote by mail. With higher voter participation, legislative decisions will reflect the interests and values of the communities they represent.
Indiana Vote by Mail legislation will provide Hoosiers the freedom to vote from their home or at a polling site. Just imagine, no more long voting lines or rushing through after-work traffic to get to a polling site by 6 pm. The Indiana Vote by Mail plan provides protection against fraud and hacking—protections above and beyond Indiana’s current election system, and Indiana Vote by Mail will save Indiana taxpayers an estimated $4.4 million dollars.
