The Friday Pitch-In

Sep 18, 2020

Attorney General Curtis Hill weighs in on vote-by-mail, and the candidates up for his job in November respond. And state officials’ heads are spinning over conflicting guidance from Washington over what to do with CARES Act money. Today we get updates on these stories and more.

We also check in with the Indiana Citizen Education Foundation on their campaign to increase voter registration and turnout in the 2020 election.

Plus, some historical perspective on this year’s racial justice protests from a Ball State professor who’s written extensively about the Watts Uprising in the 1960s, and Rodney King in the 1990s.

Produced by Matt Pelsor.
