Indiana primary (postponed from May 5)
Gov. Eric J. Holcomb of Indiana signed an executive order suspending the state’s primary elections until June 2. The presidential primary was originally scheduled for May 5.
The governor announced the postponement of the primary with members of the Indiana Democratic and Republican parties.
“The right of citizens to elect their leaders in a free and open election is one of the cornerstones of America,” Mr. Holcomb said. “In order to balance that right with the safety of county employees, poll workers and voters, delaying Indiana’s primary election is the right move as we continue to do all we can to protect Hoosiers’ health.”
Officials also announced that the state would expand the option to vote by mail to all voters for the upcoming primary election, and that any mail-in ballots previously printed with a May 5 date on them would still be valid.
Maryland primary (postponed from April 28)
Gov. Larry Hogan announced that the April 28 primary would instead be held on June 2. Limited polling places will be open to accommodate disabled voters and those without permanent addresses. Gov. Hogan urged all others to vote by mail.
“Like other states have done, all the primary elections will be postponed until June, which gives everyone time to prepare,” Mr. Hogan said. “Free and fair elections are the very foundation of American democracy, and while there are many valid reasons for unease and uncertainty right now, ensuring that the voices of Maryland citizens are heard shouldn’t be one of them.”
Mr. Hogan said that a special election in Maryland’s Seventh Congressional District to replace the late Representative Elijah E. Cummings would not be rescheduled from April 28. That election also will be run mostly by mail.
Pennsylvania primary (postponed from April 28)
Gov. Tom Wolf signed a bill postponing the state’s presidential primary election from April 28 to June 2.
State lawmakers had unanimously approved the delay, citing the pleas of county elections officials, who said the uncertainty surrounding the outbreak made it impossible to gear up for an election by the end of April.
The delay also affects a number of other elections in Pennsylvania, including congressional primaries.
The Pennsylvania secretary of state has reminded voters of the state’s mail-in ballot option, which permits any voter to request a ballot.
Rhode Island primary (postponed from April 28)
Gov. Gina Raimondo signed an executive order to move the state’s presidential primary election from April to June.
“Last week, the Board of Elections requested that the presidential primary election be postponed from April 28 to June 2 and that the election take place primarily by mail ballot,” Ms. Raimondo said on Twitter. “I am following the advice of the Board of Elections, and will sign an executive order to do this.”
Nellie M. Gorbea, the Rhode Island secretary of state, said the state would “send all registered voters a mail ballot application with a postage-paid return envelope.”….
