Hoosier voters starting to receive postcards for state voter list refresh

Hoosier voters are beginning to receive postcards in the mail from the Secretary of State Election Division.

The office is mailing these cards as part of a statewide voter list refresh. The goal is to identify outdated and inaccurate voter registration information to improve the accuracy and integrity of Indiana's voter registration list.

"It is estimated that at least one in eight voter registrations contains inaccurate information," said Secretary of State Connie Lawson.

"Inaccurate voter information affects the integrity of our voting process. It may deflate voter turnout statistics because those numbers are based on total registered voters, which we know contain some outdated information."

Postcards that are returned to the office will be used to identify outdated voter information. The office will send a second first-class mailing asking those voters to take action by updating their registration information, if necessary.

Hoosiers should use the postcard as a reminder to verify, update or start a voter registration online at Voters may also visit their local county clerk's office or any branch of the Bureau of Motor Vehicles to register to vote or update their voter registration.
