IDP Statement on Indiana Election Commission’s Decision to Keep Todd Young on Ballot

INDIANAPOLIS – John Zody, Chairman of the Indiana Democratic Party, released the following statement after the Indiana Election Commission voted to have Rep. Todd Young remain on the U.S. Senate primary ballot through a 2-2 vote.

“Today’s hearing showed two things – Todd Young thinks he’s above the law and it’s always someone else’s fault. After numerous counts by the IDP, independent media sources and others, it was clear Todd Young ignored the law set by the Indiana Election Division, did not meet the threshold requiring at least 500 certified signatures from registered voters from each congressional district, and took zero responsibility for his error. This was made absolutely clear in today’s hearing. While I am disappointed in today’s decision by the Indiana Election Commission, I remain confident in the case we made in our challenges, and any decision regarding further action is forthcoming. Regardless of outcome, the IDP will continue to look after everyday Hoosiers and advocate for fairness under all laws – including those governing our elections.”
