As an Indiana tax-payer and voter, I condemn the actions of legislators who voted in favor of amended HB1242, a bill that would change election law in the middle of the game.
There is a law in place to deal with people violating election law. Let it stand and let those who violated it be held accountable.
Changing the law after an election and applying it retro-actively to change the outcome disenfranchises voters. How can we have faith in an electoral system when legislators are allowed to change laws after the fact?
Don’t let that happen to Indiana voters. If HB 1242 comes to your desk, veto it and restore voter confidence in the electoral process. We’re counting on you as the highest elected official in Indiana to protect the integrity of Hoosier democracy.
Faith in our elected officials is at all time low. Passage is HB 1242 will only add to public mistrust. I urge you to veto HB 1242.
Thank you for your time.
