Secretary Morales devoted considerable time visiting all corners of the state to deliver checks and discuss local election improvement needs and plans with county officials. 

“There were many days we hit the road before sunrise to be able to deliver these checks to deserving counties.  From conversations I had as soon as I took office, I knew providing this funding directly to our local counties would be a needed advancement in election security and integrity. I believe safe, secure, and trusted elections start locally. As Indiana’s Chief Election Officer, I want counties to know we’re a team,” said Indiana Secretary of State Diego Morales.

Last fall, all 92 counties were invited to submit grant proposals for election improvements. 

The funding is utilized for various initiatives such as voter outreach, additional signage, security upgrades, and more.  These timely resources come ahead of the 2024 Primary and General Election. Many counties will have election improvements for the upcoming Primary Election on May 7.
