INDIANAPOLIS – Governor Eric Holcomb signed the Foreign Secretary’s law on electoral integrity into law.
The bill focused on what supporters said needed changes to voting security, including cyber security, technology and Hoosier’s ability to track their vote with an audit trail on paper.
In addition, voters must submit their driver’s license number or the last four digits of their social security number when applying for an absentee ballot online. By 2020, Indiana saw nearly 250,000 electronic applications for absentee ballots.
“This new law will ensure that as technology evolves and voter habits change, Indiana remains a national leader in electoral security and integrity,” said Secretary of State Holli Sullivan. “I would like to thank Governor Holcomb and the General Assembly for prioritizing the security of our voting process.”
Machines that allow for a paper trail so people can track their votes will be delivered to all Indiana counties at the next presidential election.
