Indiana has a good reputation in many areas, but it doesn’t do well in two interrelated and very important areas: Voter turnout and providing fair and equitable representation for all Hoosiers.

In the 2014 General Election, Indiana was dead last in terms of voter turnout. 50th out of 50 states! In the 2020 General Election Indiana was 42nd out of 50 states, but low voter turnout continues to be a negative indicator for our great state.
