Indiana governor urged to expand mail voting during pandemic

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Two former Indiana lieutenant governors called for Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb to expand mail-in voting Friday as the coronavirus continues.

Without a broad mail-in voting option, former Indiana lieutenant governors John Mutz and Kathy Davis said Friday that fewer voting locations and long lines at polls will further suppress minority, disabled and low-income voters.

Mutz, a Republican who severed under former Gov. Robert Orr, said Holcomb and other Republican elected officials are caving under pressure from President Donald Trump to hold back on no-excuse mail-in voting options.

Several Indiana nonprofits are also suing the state to challenge its election protocols.
