INDIANAPOLIS - Secretary of State Diego Morales completed delivering election improvement grant checks to counties throughout the state in preparation for upcoming local, state, and federal Elections.

Sixty-seven counties received election improvement grants. Over 2 million dollars were distributed as part of the Federal Help America Vote Act Election Security program.

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 at the local level, and 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 being utilized for a wide variety of initiatives such as voter outreach efforts, additional signage, security upgrades, and more.  These timely resources come ahead of the 2024 Primary and General Election. Many counties will have election improvements in place for the upcoming Primary Election on May 7.
