TRANSCRIPT:

This is the Indiana Democratic Party podcast for the week of March 14, 2020.

The 2020 session of the Indiana General Assembly concluded this week with no real action on teacher pay, as well as a reminder that the Republican supermajorities care more about special interests than they do about our communities across the state. 

Our Democratic legislators fought hard to make a difference on education, on voting rights, and to make sure Hoosiers across the state were protected under the law. They deserve our thanks for their hard work – and it is our goal as a Party to send them more Democrats this fall.

Would you like to help make that difference? Sign up at indems.org/join and we’ll get you plugged in to help a candidate running for office this year. 

As candidates for office continue to campaign – that landscape will be changing a bit, however, over at least the next couple of weeks as our state and nation continue to deal with the COVID-19 virus.

Yesterday, the Indiana Democratic Party issued guidance to our county party organizations and offered advice to campaigns and other activists who are engaged in the political process. Everyone involved is first interested in protecting the health and well-being of everyone in our communities. 

As we all should – we recommend following state and local health guidelines to prevent transmission of the virus, and we offered some advice on what people should take into consideration over the next couple of weeks, and beyond. If you’d like to learn more about this information that we offered, please visit our website at indems.org and you’ll see it on the front page.

In addition, we sent a bipartisan letter to the Indiana Election Commission yesterday urging the Commission to make strong accommodations regarding absentee voting as the May 5 primary rapidly approaches.

As always, we will continue to do everything we can to look out for our loved ones, candidates, activists – and Hoosier voters, and we appreciate you help in doing so.

Please stay safe and healthy in the coming weeks, and thank you for listening.
