[SOS] Secretary of State Connie Lawson’s statement on Pew’s Elections Performance Index
Start Date: 4/8/2014 All Day
End Date: 4/8/2014
Entry Description

INDIANAPOLIS (April 8, 2014) – “We are pleased that Pew recognized our significant improvement in their performance index and we plan to be proactive about the need for continued improvement.


“Indiana already leads the nation in giving access to military and overseas voters through extended registration and ballot request deadlines. For the 2014 Primary Election, Indiana has already sent all ballots to military and overseas voters well before the federal deadline. I will call upon the bipartisan Election Division and county election officials to work with me to identify steps we can take to reduce the number of rejected absentee ballots returned by overseas voters. I will be especially interested to hear from those counties who had the highest percentage of these ballots rejected in 2012.


“I have already asked the 2014 General Assembly for, and they passed, automatic audits when precinct vote totals do not match the poll lists. We will further call on county election boards to conduct voluntary audits to better identify and correct errors.


“Indiana will continue to lead the nation in making improvements to the election process which protect both access to the ballot and public confidence in the integrity of voting.
