In the final days before the June 2 primary election, State Senator J.D. Ford (D-Indianapolis) urged Governor Eric Holcomb to take action to make sure every Hoosier’s vote is counted.

In a letter to the governor, Sen. Ford suggested two specific ways Indiana can ensure each of the over 500,000 absentee ballots requested this primary election is counted:

  • Allow ballots that are postmarked on or before June 2, and arrive at the designated election office by noon 10 days post-election, to be counted. This practice is currently state law for our military service members.
  • Allow voters to hand-deliver their ballots to their county election office by 6 p.m. on June 2, the primary election day.
