INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Democratic Party Chairman John Zody issued the following statement after Gov. Holcomb’s briefing today where Secretary of State Connie Lawson shared information about the proposed agreement the Indiana Election Commission will consider on Friday.
“From day one, the goal of the Indiana Democratic Party in these negotiations was to ensure Hoosiers can exercise their right to vote safely and securely, while at the same time protecting those who administer elections and work the polls. This is the next step in what is a multi-step process, and we are glad agreement has been reached to provide election administrators with more clarity for the June 2 primary, as well as more flexibility and critical public health guidance.
“The process continues to remove barriers to vote by mail. We look forward to next week’s Commission meeting where all options are on the table to provide the safest and most expansive options for voting now and in the future.”
