Contact the Governor and Secretary of State to extend Vote By Mail for any reason for the November Election.
With the primary election we have seen mail-in voting work. Covid-19 will still exist in Indiana in November. Planning and the allocating of resources to continue to keep Indiana voters safe while voting should be done now. Please contact Governor Holcomb and Connie Lawson (constituent@sos.IN.gov) telling them you want No Excuse Vote by Mail available for the November Election.
