INDIANAPOLIS (May 4, 2018) — Secretary of State Connie Lawson has received numerous complaints from Hoosier voters who received a letter claiming to be a ‘state voter report.’ These letters purport to be voting record audits. The letter lists an individual’s name, address and voter participation for 2014 and 2016. It also lists neighbors and friends of the individual and their voter participation history.
“The State of Indiana does not treat lightly its role to strictly limit access to voting records,” said Secretary of State Connie Lawson. “Many of the Hoosiers who have contacted our office have indicated that their voting records, as stated in the letter, were inaccurate. I would advise anyone who receives the letter to disregard it.”
Indiana law restricts the availability of voter participation records. The state only provides this information to state political parties and legislative caucuses.
