Straight Ticket Voting Changes Require Educational Efforts


Indiana residents are being reminded that straight ticket voting rules have changed for November’s general election.

On November 8th when voters head to the polls, they will still be able to vote a straight ticket, but that vote will not county for any individual candidate for county council or town council at-large seats.

Voters must now individually select the candidates available for that seat. According to the state, some voters did not follow ballot instructions and chose to split the ticket by marking both a straight party ticket and voting for individual candidates.

In addition to outreach and education efforts being conducted prior to Election Day, voters will also be informed will being provided with their ballot prior to casting their ballots.
