vote by mail

The Indiana State Department of Health reported 89 additional confirmed deaths over the last week, bringing the state’s total to 2,924. The state announced more than 80,000 total confirmed cases – including three days with more than 1,000 reported cases – and more than 906,000 Hoosiers tested.

Voter advocates want Hoosiers to be able to vote by mail in this year’s general election.
