The recently-formed Indiana Citizen Education Foundation has launched a get-out-the-vote initiative, One More Voice.
The organization says the statewide campaign intends to increase voter registration, education and turnout.
“Your voice adds value where you call home, and it’s even greater to the people and issues you believe in – they depend on it.” said Bill Moreau, president and co-founder of The Indiana Citizen Education Foundation.
Moreau says Hoosier participation in primary and general elections is some of the lowest in the nation. He says Indiana has been in the bottom 10 states for voter turnout in four of the past five elections.
Through this new campaign, the nonprofit hopes to reach 750,000 of the state’s estimated 1.7 million unregistered voters. The organization also wants residents to understand the issues and what impact they have.
“Every voice adds up. With one more voice, people hear and people listen. Let that voice be yours,” Moreau said.
Indiana’s primary election is coming up June 2. The deadline to register has closed.
With health concerns stemming from the pandemic, the state is now allowing every registered voter to use an absentee ballot. The deadline to submit an application to receive an absentee ballot is May 21.
