Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson also said she’d recommend to the state election commission that they suspend absentee balloting rules to allow all Indiana voters to vote absentee should they so choose, along with other recommendations that would make it easier for Hoosiers to vote. Indiana typically requires an excuse to vote via mail-in absentee ballots. Lawson said the recommendation would only apply to the June 2 elections.
