Indiana elections chief IDs problem with absentee applications

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (AP) — Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson says some voters who applied for an absentee ballot through the Indiana Democratic Party are at risk of not receiving one.

That's because the party sent out absentee applications that were missing instructions, a requirement under state law.

Lawson, a Republican, says her office's election division on Friday approved their use despite the deficiency.

But she said local election officials in a handful of counties, which she would not identify, already disqualified their use.

Her office urged those who have signed up to vote absentee to check their voting status online at Indianavoters.in.gov.

Officials say voters can sign up to cast an absentee ballot a number of ways, including submitting an application through a political party.
