Candidates have final weekend to convince Hoosiers to vote on Tuesday

By Stephanie Wiechmann | Published on in Uncategorized

Political candidates hoping for victory on Election Day have one more weekend to convince Hoosiers to come out to the polls and vote. The state Republican Party has organized a bus tour that will travel to eight cities on Saturday and Monday. Six GOP candidates will join the Governor and Lieutenant Governor on the bus.

In the three statewide races – Secretary of State, Auditor, and Treasurer – five of the six major party candidates are running television ads. The Democratic candidate for Treasurer has opted for a free YouTube video explaining his priorities instead. It has been viewed about 30 times.

Today, Attorney General Greg Zoeller reminded candidates that robocalling is illegal in Indiana. Candidates could be fined up to five thousand dollars each time they use technology that automatically calls residential phone numbers and plays a pre-recorded message.

Hoosiers have been voting early in-person and by absentee ballot since the beginning of October. Election Day is next Tuesday, November 4.
