Indiana Early Voting

Purdue University Ft Wayne

Today:   It's Indiana politics day on "Regionally Speaking."  Andy Downs, the director of the Mike Downs Center for Indiana Politics at Purdue University Ft Wayne, is with us with a pre-Election Day update which includes his thoughts on the latest vote-by-mail decisions, early voting opportunities, the Attorney General candidates on the ballot and concerns about voting equipment security issues.  That is also the subject that Indiana University Public Policy Institute analyst Joti Martin talks about.  The Institute just issued a new analysis that finds that Indiana's reliance on older paperless voting machines could pose security risks in the upcoming election.  And Indiana Public Broadcasting's Brandon Smith has a feature on the 2020 Governor's race and of the three candidates on the ballot.
