Secretary of State Rokita Requests Voter's Bill of Rights Coverage
Contact: Cam Savage
Document to be posted in every Indiana voting precinct
Indianapolis, IN -- Indiana Secretary of State Todd Rokita today requests Indiana media outlets to plan to include a copy of the Voter's Bill of Rights as part of upcoming general election coverage or in public service announcements. The Voter's Bill of Rights was approved by the Indiana Election Commission in March 2003.
"I am happy to present the Voter's Bill of Rights to Hoosier voters. It is a top priority of my office to safeguard every vote," said Secretary Rokita. "This Voter's Bill of Rights is a plain language document about accessibility and accountability; accessibility for those who have the right to vote and accountability for those who intend to commit fraud. I look forward to providing the Voter's Bill of Rights for display in all precincts throughout the state and for publication in all media outlets."
Secretary Rokita's office has developed a poster for the Voter's Bill of Rights so that it may be easily displayed in polling places and in news media election coverage. The poster has been produced in English and in Spanish. Secretary Rokita is distributing the document to election officials this month and asks each county clerk to post the Voter's Bill of Rights poster in every precinct.
A copy of the Voter's Bill of Rights is attached and is available at the Secretary of State's website: http://www.sos.in.gov/. Copies of the Voter's Bill of Rights posters are available in Secretary Rokita's State House office. For more information, please contact Cam Savage at 317-233-8655.
