Indiana’s absentee voting bill advances

Absentee voting legislation House Bill 1334 is now heading to the Indiana Senate. Authored by by Rep. Timothy Wesco, R-Osceola, it was passed in the Indiana House of Representatives last week 64-27.

The bill says voters must request an absentee ballot—they cannot be sent one by “an agency of the state or a political subdivision” unsolicited—and must provide certain forms of ID with their application.

Rep. Kyle Pierce, R-Anderson, tried to clarify the bill, saying the rules would be the same for voting either by mail or in person.

However, Rep. Tonya Pfaff, D-Terre Haute, said the bill would suppress voters, making it harder for some people to vote, in particular the elderly. — Xain Ballenger
