Early voting made easier for disabled Hoosiers

January 12, 2010

Today, the Indiana House of Representatives passed a bill aimed at making early and absentee voting easier for disabled Hoosiers. Representative Kreg Battles of Vincennes, who authored the bill, said it is important that disabled voters are afforded the same rights when voting early as they are on Election Day.

The bill, which passed unanimously, calls for every Indiana county to have a direct-recording electronic voting machine, or DRE, available for early and absentee voting. Currently every county has the necessary DRE per federal statute, though the Americans with Disabilities Act only require they be available the day of the election. The bill will now move to the Senate.
