Authors: Senator R Michael Young

Digest

Requires an application for an absentee ballot to instruct a voter that the voter must provide the voter's voter identification number on the application. Requires that the form must inform the voter that the voter can access the online statewide voter registration system or call a telephone number provided on the form to find the voter's voter identification number. Requires that the online voter registration system must enable a voter (regardless of how the voter registered to vote) to recover the voter's voter identification number. Requires the secretary of state to mail to each Indiana voter during 2016 information telling the voter: (1) the voter's voter identification number; (2) that a voter must provide the voter's voter identification number on an absentee ballot application; (3) how a voter may subsequently find the voter's voter identification number from the statewide voter registration system; and (4) any other information the secretary of state considers useful to educate voters about voter identification numbers or absentee voting.
