HEA 1011-Miscellaneous Election Law Matters

Establishes a pilot program in selected counties that will hopefully go statewide whereby a voter may vote at any vote center in his/her county regardless of precinct. This law would make voting much easier for those who work somewhere different than where they live. By giving people more flexibility with where they vote, hopefully Indiana can substantially increase voter turnout and make it possible for people who could not make it to the polls on election day to vote. Workaholics, people on the move and young families will benefit from this experiment. This is a good move on the part of the Indiana legislature and we hope that it works out well in the pilot counties and becomes law for all of Indiana very soon. And, after that, let's work on eliminating the gerrymandered districts so when people do vote they have a choice. What a combination -- choice and access?

This is a smoke and mirrors scam, a feel good fix-it bill for something not broke.

We have traveling election boards, the ability to go to your clerks office and vote plus absentee ballots. Anyone that wants to vote
can, under present law.

Spend the time and money ending gerrymandering, NOTA ballots and ending excessive ballot qualifications for all political parties.

Give voters a real choice and they may have a reason to vote.
