The dismal turnout for this year's primary elections should be a red light on Indiana's dashboard.

Now that an end to straight ticket voting has been proposed, voters will need to be better informed.

Indiana's local newspapers could provide this information in two ways. By printing (that's putting it on paper, not just on a website):

  • A detailed and unbiased description of every candidate in the days just prior to the election.
  • A sample ballot in the paper published the day before and on Election Day itself.

An informed electorate is vital for good government.
