INDIANAPOLIS (May 22, 2019) — Hoosier voters are beginning to receive postcards in the mail from the Secretary of State’s Election Division. The card reminds Hoosiers that Election Day is Tuesday, November 5, 2019. The office is mailing these postcards 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 The goal is to identify outdated and inaccurate voter registration information to improve the accuracy and integrity of Indiana’s voter registration list.
Postcards that are returned to the office as undeliverable will be used to identify outdated voter information. If the first mailing is returned as undeliverable, a second postcard will be sent to the forwardable address on file with the US Postal Service. The second postcard will ask the voter to confirm or update their residence address or cancel their Indiana voter registration using a postage pre-paid voter response card.
“These mailings help us identify records that need updating or are no longer valid,” said Secretary of State Connie Lawson.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.”
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 to register or update their voter registration.
