Election Reform

Indiana ranks in the bottom 10 among all states for voter participation: 46th for voter registration and 40th for voter turnout. Voter ID laws and other restrictive measures don't help.

Common Cause Indiana lobbies the General Assembly in support of legislation to make voting more accessible. We support more early voting opportunities at satellite locations outside county courthouses, longer polling place hours (our 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. voting day is the shortest in the country), and less restrictive absentee voting laws. The best way to address administrative barriers to voting is Election Day voter registration, which is possible now that we have a statewide, electronic voter file.

For more information about barriers to participation in Indiana elections, read our testimony before the National Commission on Voting at its May 30, 2014 hearing in Columbus, OH.(NEED LINK)
