There’s a brighter-than-usual spotlight on the race for Indiana Attorney General this year, mostly because of a person who’s not in the race – the current AG Curtis Hill. Hill’s sexual misconduct while in office led to Republicans choosing a new candidate, former U.S. Rep. Todd Rokita.

Indiana Public Broadcasting’s Brandon Smith sat down with the Democratic candidate, Jonathan Weinzapfel, to talk about the race’s big issues and how he’d approach the job differently than its current occupant.

More than half of the voting machines Hoosiers are using in this year’s election don’t have a paper backup – making them more vulnerable to irreversible errors and breaches.

The hopes of Hoosiers who wanted Indiana to expand vote-by-mail for this fall’s election are all but buried after a federal appeals court ruling Tuesday.

Today is the last day for Hoosiers to register to vote for the 2020 general election.

Hoosiers can register in-person at their county election administrator’s office – they have until the end of the business day to do so. But they have until midnight if they go online to IndianaVoters.com.
