INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana will offer in-person voting for the upcoming primary election, despite calls for a mail-in election by party leaders and other organizations.

Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson on Thursday announced the state would offer “limited” in-person early voting around the state, from May 26 through June 1. The primary election will be held June 2. In-person voting will be available that day, too.

Lawson encouraged anyone interested in voting remotely to request an absentee ballot, to mail in their ballot. May 21 is the deadline to request an absentee ballot.

Lawson, who spoke during Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb’s daily coronavirus response briefing, called the time “an unprecedented election cycle.”

You can request an absentee ballot with this form.
