On November 14, WBOI hosted our quarterly Issues & Ales panel discussions at Joseph Decuis in downtown Roanoke.

Our first hour focused on recapping the 2018 midterm elections, and what the results mean for politics and government in the Trump era.

Hoosiers have about a week to register to vote if they wish to participate in the upcoming May primary elections. The deadline to register or make changes to voter registration records is by the end of the day on April 9.

In this week's episode of WBOI Presents, we feature an IPFW panel discussion entitled "Voting: Right, Privilege, or Burden?" This discussion was recorded on November 9th in the Helmke Library at IPFW.  The event was moderated by Political Science Professor James, and the panelists were history professor Ann Livshiz and political science professors Andrew Downs and Michael Wolf.

Indiana has identified more than 700,000 voter records that need to be updated or marked inactive in its effort to clean up the state’s voter rolls.

Earlier this year, Secretary of State Connie Lawson’s office sent postcards to every Hoosier on the voter list.  More than 750,000 came back as undeliverable.
