Indiana Voter advocacy groups

Today:   The Center for American Progress just completed a study of voter turnout, based on individual states' efforts in 2016 and projected the opportunities for more people to get to the polls in this mid-term election -- and beyond.  Danielle Root of the CAP joins us to talk about the report, and how thousands more Hoosiers could vote, with just a few changes to voter registration, same-day registration and no-excuse absentee voting. 

Lawsuit Challenges Indiana Voter Roll Cleanup Law

Aug 24, 2017

A lawsuit from Indiana voter advocacy groups alleges a new state law that allows counties to purge inactive voters from their rolls violates federal law. The legal action was brought on behalf of Indiana’s NAACP and the League of Women Voters.

For years, Indiana’s used what’s called the Interstate Voter Registration Crosscheck to look for voters who moved to another state. Legislation that took effect July 1makes it easier for counties to remove voters found in that system.
