The election text hotline is simple to use. Just text the letters ‘IN’ to the number 45995. A secure link will be returned where Hoosiers can submit their question or concern directly to the Secretary of State’s Office. Election staff will promptly receive and review questions or concerns and respond directly to the voter.

Hoosiers can text ‘IN’ to 45995 for a wide variety of reasons.  A few examples include:
