The Primary election date has been changed and because of health risks, many people will not want to go vote at the polls. There will be fewer physical polling places than there have been in past elections. It is important that all Hoosiers vote in the June 2 Indiana Primary Election. By voting in the primary, you help determine what candidates will be on the ballot in November for your party, Democratic or Republican.
