INDIANAPOLIS — Due to the coronavirus outbreak, the Indiana Election Commission has changed some policies for the state’s June 2 primary election.

Last month, the commission approved moving the date of the election back to June 2.

The new changes are:

  • Limited early in-person voting will be available for one week, from May 26 to June 1.
  • Poll workers are currently required to live in the county they work for. This requirement is waived so long as the voter is registered to vote in Indiana.
  • The Secretary of State and the Indiana Election Division will provide counties with training and guidelines on mail handling procedures and personal protective equipment.
  • The Commission advises that all public buildings, such as fire stations and school buildings, be available for use for the June 2 Primary.
    All absentee ballot applications submitted after Dec. 2 will be accepted regardless of excuse given, as long as they are otherwise compliant with Indiana law.
  • County election boards may adopt more than one central count location.
  • Counties may move a polling location after giving best possible notice to the public.
