From Chicago Tribune:

Indiana is one of only a handful of states clinging to the outdated notion that having an excuse on the absentee ballot application is necessary to preserve election integrity. In a paper published by the conservative think-tank R Street in February 2021, “The Case Against Restricting Voting Access”  ( ), the authors assert that “abolishing no-excuse voting will not close any purported paths to fraud.” They continue that “moving to an excuse-only absentee system would do nothing to combat fraud, and may instead suppress voter turnout.”
