Time for new approach to Indiana voter turnout

Leigh Morris

Voter turnout is a concern across the country, but it’s especially problematic in Indiana, where it has been lagging for years. It hit rock bottom in 2014 when, by many measures, Indiana had the lowest voter turnout of all the states.

By the 2016 Presidential elections, there was improvement, but Indiana was still rated as 38th out of the 50 states, with 55 percent of registered voters casting ballots. In the 2018 General Election, Indiana slipped even further to 40th of the 50 states with 49 percent of registered voters casting ballots.
