Hoosiers Given Option to Vote by Mail to Avoid Contact with COVID-19

It’s official.

Indiana will put off its primary until June 2nd because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Indiana Election Commission on Wednesday unanimously approved the four-week postponement of the primary ordered by Governor Eric Holcomb.

The commission also approved a universal vote-by-mail option in hopes of reducing the number of people at polling places.

Instead of having to meet specific criteria to vote absentee, you’ll be able to request an absentee ballot for any reason.

Along with the presidential primary, Indiana is choosing nominees in all nine congressional districts, nine state Senate races, 35 Indiana House races, and for various county offices.
