As the November 7th municipal election approaches, State Representatives Jack Jordan (R-Bremen) and Jake Teshka (R-North Liberty) encourage Hoosier voters to submit election-related questions or report issues using the state’s new text hotline.

Jordan said by texting ‘IN’ to 45995, Hoosiers will receive a secure link to a website where they can ask questions, request information, submit a complaint, or report a problem directly to the Indiana Secretary of State’s Office. Election staff will receive and review questions or concerns, and respond directly to voters by phone, email, or text.

“If you’re making a plan to vote and need help finding a polling location or have an issue, the new texting hotline is available to use,” Jordan said. “This is a safe and secure way to connect to help and get your questions answered.”

According to Teshka, voters can use the hotline for a variety of reasons, including reporting something suspicious at a polling site, receiving information about voting locations and hours, and asking questions about election security through the hotline. The service is free, but individual users’ text messaging and data rates may apply.

“With the upcoming election, Hoosiers can now reach out to the Secretary of State’s Office more easily when they need election information,” Teshka said. “Be sure to get out and vote on Election Day, and if you have questions be sure to text the election hotline or check out the online voter portal at IndianaVoters.com.”

Municipal Election Day is Tuesday, November 7th, and polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Hoosiers can also check their voting status, find early vote and Election Day polling locations, and view a sample ballot at IndianaVoters.com.
