INDIANAPOLIS, IN — Hoosiers can register to vote and see voting equipment on Thursdays at the Secretary of State’s booth at the Indiana State Fair.
Each Thursday of the fair the Secretary of State’s main booth will be staffed from 9 am until 9 pm.
“This longstanding partnership with the Indiana State Fair provides invaluable education around voting,” Secretary of State Holli Sullivan said. “As I travel around the state, I hear Hoosiers express anxiety about the safety of our elections and I want to assure you – Indiana’s elections have never been more secure. So, in addition to registering Hoosiers to vote at our booth, we’ll have hands-on demonstrations to show how we ensure your vote is accurately recorded.”
Secretary of State Sullivan wants to remind Hoosiers that:
- Voting equipment is never connected to the internet.
- Equipment is publicly tested by a bi-partisan county election board and certified by an independent group from Ball State University before each election.
- A bipartisan team counts every vote securely, and the independent Ball State University program conducts audits of the results after each election. Additionally, fair-goers will be able to ask staff about other services the Secretary of State’s Office provides including helping Hoosiers start businesses through the state’s one-stop resource for registering and managing a business – INBiz – and protecting Hoosiers’ hard-earned money through the Securities Division.
The booth will be on State Fair Boulevard, North of 38th Street from Gate 1, located between the West Pavilion and the Indiana Arts Building (pictured).
