New Procedures for Indiana Primary Election Revealed By IEC

The Indiana Election Commission has adopted new procedures for the state’s primary election, which was delayed from May 5th to June 2nd of this year due to concerns and mandates made in an effort to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus. The IEC says changes made will move all election dates by exactly 28 days, and have approved a measure that will alleviate the need for re-printing ballots and other forms that have the May 5th date. The new procedures also allow for all citizens to cast an absentee ballot by mail, even without a specified reason. In addition, county election boards will be permitted to conduct meetings electronically, rather than in person. We have a link to the complete, official changes here.
