     More than 60 Indiana counties will be receiving Federal Help America Vote Act grant dollars to go towards local election improvement and security efforts. The Secretary of State has reviewed and approved local election improvement sub-grant proposals valued at approximately 2 million dollars.
     “There was a wide range of options in which the $2 million funding could have been utilized. I was confident the best use of this funding was to invest in local election initiatives. The core of our state is at the county level. When our counties are strong, our state is strong. I’m excited to hand deliver grant money and learn how my office can further assist with their local election improvement projects.” said Indiana Secretary of State Diego Morales.
     “The partnership between election officials and Secretary Morales is evident through grant opportunities like this one and his overall support. Our project provides for an educational component designed specifically for voters and poll workers to shine a light on the electoral process in Indiana and so all the stakeholders can understand the process, the rules, and their rights,” said LeAnn Angerman, Assistant Director, Lake County Board of Elections and Registration.
     Among projects approved for grant funding were election voting process and security improvements, poll worker training, and outreach and education initiatives for voters.
     Pictures are attached and available for use. Pictures of additional county visits will be posted on Secretary Morales’ social media platforms.
