Four Indianapolis residents have filed a lawsuit trying to get Attorney General Curtis Hill permanently ousted from his position.

The complaint filed in Marion County wants the state Supreme Court to answer a question it refused to address earlier this week: whether the 30-day suspension of Hill’s law license creates a vacancy in the office.

Thursday is the last day for Hoosiers to request a vote-by-mail ballot for this year's primary.

Indiana expanded vote-by-mail to all voters for its postponed June 2 primary due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Any voter can request an absentee ballot online at IndianaVoters.com.

Vote-by-mail ballots must be received by the local county clerk by noon on Election Day.



There’s been a new shakeup in the Republican race for the Indiana Attorney General nomination – former Secretary of State and U.S. Rep. Todd Rokita announced his candidacy Wednesday.

Hill’s law license is suspended for 30 days after the court last week ruled he criminally battered four women.

Dr. Woody Myers and former Rep. Linda Lawson are effusive in their praise for each other as they begin to campaign as the Indiana Democrats’ gubernatorial ticket.

Myers has been the Democrats’ presumptive nominee for governor for three months, after his primary opponents dropped out. But the state party’s central committee had to postpone the deadline for Myers to name his running mate after no name had been secured.

The Indiana Republican Party’s 2020 state convention will be virtual. The party officially announced the change Tuesday, in compliance with COVID-19 guidelines.

The state’s “Back On Track” plan will likely restrict gatherings to no more than 250 people by June 19, when the state GOP convention is scheduled. And since the event typically attracts more than 1,000 delegates, party chair Kyle Hupfer says it’s a no-go.

Indiana Democratic gubernatorial candidate Woody Myers finally named his running mate Friday. Former state Rep. Linda Lawson will be the Democrats’ lieutenant governor candidate.

Lawson spent 20 years serving her northwest Indiana House district. In a Facebook video, Myers says beyond her legislative experience, Lawson has spent her career breaking glass ceilings.

“She is smart, experienced and exactly what Indiana needs right now,” Myers says.
