INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana Election Commission has deadlocked on whether to let all residents vote by mail due to the coronavirus pandemic. During a virtual commission meeting, the Democratic members of the four-person board offered a proposal that would have allowed all voters to cast a ballot by mail in November due to the coronavirus pandemic. Republican members opposed making that change, arguing it's not necessary. Under the stay-at-home order in June, Indiana's current vote-by-mail restrictions were lifted, allowing anyone the option to vote by mail. For now, however, the state will remain one of nine without no-excuse-needed absentee voting.
