Exploration. Education. Participation.

I am pleased to welcome you to Indiana’s first comprehensive online civics resource page!

As the state’s chief elections official, I have made it my duty to foster civic participation among all Hoosiers.  Whether you are a voter, student, educator, or would simply like to learn more about our electoral process, this website contains something for you.  Be sure to test your knowledge by taking our Civics Quiz.  You can even share your score through social media!  I also urge you to register to vote and become civically engaged – the uture of our Democracy depends on it.

Have fun exploring!
