In preparation for the upcoming election, Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson is implementing new security measures and resources to help protect Hoosier voters.

All voting equipment in Indiana is tested by the Voting System Technical Oversight Program for an added layer of safety and security.

Before the election, each county also conducts public testing of voting equipment.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has conducted risk and vulnerability testing to secure Indiana’s electronic information, including the statewide voter registration system and the state election website.

Several county election boards adopt customized security resolutions beyond what is required by state law.

The Hoosier state has partnered with the Election Infrastructure Information Sharing and Analysis Center, which provides 24/7 security information, threat notifications and security advisories.

Anyone with questions can call the Hoosier Voter Hotline at 866-IN-1-VOTE.
