Indiana recently closed the book on maybe the most unusual election in its history – a primary, delayed by a month, that featured expanded vote-by-mail.

Despite worries about COVID-19's impact on the economy, voters appear to be supporting funding proposals from school corporations across Indiana. Unofficial results show 16 out of the 18 school funding referendum measures passing. 

It was the state's biggest group of school referendums at once since 2010, and as of Wednesday morning, it looks like one of the most successful.

Hoosiers shouldn’t expect full results the night of Indiana’s primary election like usual.

Indiana expanded vote-by-mail to anyone who wanted it for this year’s primary, a reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic. And about 500,000 more people requested such a ballot than in the last presidential primary.

Nearly 550,000 Hoosiers requested absentee ballots for the 2020 primary – a huge increase from prior years after the state expanded vote-by-mail to anyone who wanted it.

But there are reports of people not getting their ballots until weeks after requesting them – leading many to wonder if they’ll have enough time to return them.

Hoosiers have one week left to register to vote for Indiana’s 2020 primary election.

When Indiana moved its primary back to June 2 (from May 5) due to the COVID-19 crisis, the state election commission had to move the rest of its deadlines to compensate.

Indiana’s 2020 primary election will move to June 2 in response to COVID-19 concerns.

Gov. Eric Holcomb, Secretary of State Connie Lawson and state party leaders announced the unprecedented change Friday.
