INDIANAPOLIS (May 18, 2016) — Hoosier voters are beginning to receive postcards in the mail from the Secretary of State’s office. The card reminds Hoosiers that Election Day is Tuesday, November 8, 2016 and to visit www.indianavoters.com for election information. The office is mailing these post cards as part of a statewide voter list refresh. The goal is to identify outdated and inaccurate voter registration information to improve the accuracy and integrity of Indiana’s voter registration list.
“In 2014, we were able to identify 731,585 records that needed updating or were no longer valid,” said Secretary Lawson. “Updating these records, helps us create a more accurate picture of voter turnout for the state, while protecting the integrity of our elections. Hoosiers deserve to know we have accurate voter lists.”
Postcards that are returned to the office as undeliverable will be used to identify outdated voter information. The office will send a second first-class forwardable mailing asking those voters to take action by updating their registration information, if necessary.
Hoosiers should use the postcard as a reminder to verify, update or start a voter registration online at www.indianavoters.com. Voters may also visit their local county clerk’s office or any branch of the Bureau of Motor Vehicles to register to vote or update their voter registration.
Images of the postcards are available online. The front of the postcard can be found online at http://in.gov/sos/elections/files/VLM_IN_First_Card_1.pdf. The back of the postcard can be found online at http://in.gov/sos/elections/files/VLM_IN_First_Card_back_1.pdf.
