People across Indiana are contacting the Secretary of States office to report they’ve received letters that claim to be voting record audits. 

The letter from the “Indiana State Voter Report Program” lists voter information on past participation as well as that of friends and neighbors.  

Indiana has restrictions on voter participation records, only providing it to political parties and legislative caucuses.  

In a statement Secretary of State Connie Lawson said, “The State of Indiana does not treat lightly its role to strictly limit access to voting records."

Lawson advises Hoosiers disregard these letters.
